Term Information [More information on melatonin receptor activity]

Accession
GO:0008502
Name
melatonin receptor activity
Ontology
molecular_function
Synonyms
None
Definition
Combining with melatonin, N-acetyl-5-methoxytryptamine, to initiate a change in cell activity. Melatonin is a neuroendocrine substance that stimulates the aggregation of melanosomes in melanophores, thus lightening the skin. Source: GOC:ai, ISBN:0198506732
