Celebrating 25 Years of the Discovery of the Cys Loop Ligand-gated Ion Channel Superfamily

CysLoopNov. 26, 2012-- The year 2012 marks the 25th anniversary of the discovery of the cys loop ligand-gated ion channel superfamily of neurotransmitter receptors. This minireview series celebrates this with a series of articles reviewing current information for each of the family members, nicotinic acetylcholine receptors, glycine receptors; GABAA receptors; serotonin-3 (5HT-3) receptors and glutamate-gated chloride ion channels of protosome invertebrate phyla.
