Biogenic amine receptor

Biogenic amine receptor

Biogenic amine receptor are a variety of neurotransmitter receptors that are sensitive to biogenic amine neurotransmitters. These are inthe family of Rhodopsin-like receptors, primarily within the G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) family of transmembrane receptors.
