Tree number(s): D12.776.543.750
Scope note: Cell surface proteins that bind signalling molecules external to the cell with high affinity and convert this extracellular event into one or more intracellular signals that alter the behavior of the target cell (From Alberts, Molecular Biology of the Cell, 2nd ed, pp693-5). Cell surface receptors, unlike enzymes, do not chemically alter their ligands.
Annotation: GEN: prefer specifics; coord IM with specific endogenous substance (IM); for hormone receptors in general coord HORMONES (IM) + RECEPTORS, CELL SURFACE (IM) or RECEPTORS, CYTOPLASMIC AND NUCLEAR (IM), for receptors of specific hormones, coord specific hormone or hormone group (IM) + precoord hormone receptor (e.g., RECEPTORS, ALDOSTERONE) (IM) or precoord hormone-group receptor (e.g., RECEPTORS, GLUCOCORTICOID) (IM); DF: RECEPT CELL SURFACE
