Term Information [More information on excitatory extracellular ligand-gated ion channel activity]

Accession
GO:0005231
Name
excitatory extracellular ligand-gated ion channel activity
Ontology
molecular_function
Synonyms
None
Definition
Enables the transmembrane transfer of an ion by a channel that opens when a specific extracellular excitatory ligand has been bound by the channel complex or one of its constituent parts. Excitatory ligands, such as acetylcholine or glutamate, open cation-selective channels. Source: ISBN:0323037070, GOC:mah
