Definitions for "Receptor"
a docking site which interacts with a ligand; receptors may be on the cell membrane or within the cell cytoplasm or nucleus; estrogen receptors and androgen receptors are examples; all cells have multiple receptors
A structure located on the nerve cell that receives the chemical messenger (neurotransmitter, such as dopamine) sent from an adjacent nerve cell. This is how nerve cells communicate. Most of the drugs used to treat Parkinson's disease are designed to interact with nerve cell receptors and improve nerve cell communication.
A molecule inside or on the surface of a cell, which binds specific substances causing a specific effect within the cell.
a key player in both pre-synaptic and post-synaptic patterning in barrel formation
a key player in excitatory transmission and synaptic plasticity in the central nervous system
a multisubunit chloride channel that mediates the fastest inhibitory synaptic transmission in the central nervous system
the terminal structure of a neuron, specialized to receive stimuli and transmit them to the spinal cord and brain.
A sensory nerve ending that responds to a stimulus.
an organ having nerve endings (in the skin or viscera or eye or ear or nose or mouth) that respond to stimulation
An entity (e.g. controlled water, structure, etc.) which has been, or could potentially be impacted by a contaminant
The species, population, community, habitat, etc. that may be exposed to contaminants
Refers to the human population residing in the development/remediation project area that may be exposed to potential contaminants from the consumption of country foods.

Receptor refers to the entity that may be Harmed (a person, property, habitat etc.). For example, in the Event of heavy rainfall (the source) Flood water may propagate across the Flood plain (the Pathway) and inundate housing (the receptor) that may suffer material damage (the Harm or Consequence). The Vulnerability of a receptor can be modified by increasing its Resilience to Flooding. Gouldby ...
