Definitions of LULIBERIN RECEPTORS
Sort: Oldest first
Receptors with a 6-kD protein on the surfaces of cells that secrete LH or FOLLICLE STIMULATING HORMONE, usually in the adenohypophysis. LHRH binds to these receptors, is endocytosed with the receptor and, in the cell, triggers the release of LH or FOLLICLE STIMULATING HORMONE by the cell. These receptors are also found in rat gonads. INHIBINS prevent the binding of GnRH to its receptors.
