In a similar manner to this Wikipedia page, although I am not too concerned about the localisation of the receptor, or any known ligands, as I can already access this knowledge easily.


  • $\begingroup$ Hello @Roby Vicary, I think you forgot to link the wikipedia page in your question. To help you elaborate the question: Are you interested in any particular species? Could you give us an example for one or two receptors of the information you are seeking for if you arleady found some? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Hi, @Untitpol, thank you for the response, I have no serious regard for species at this time, the more extensive the better - although if I'm spoiled for choice, homo sapiens. I have added the Wikipedia link on alpha2 adrenergic receptors, the only thing lacking is the number of other receptor types to read up on. $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 3, 2018 at 12:19

    $\begingroup$ IUPHAR database? As far as I know, this is among the most extensive database of receptors. $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 4, 2018 at 1:02

    $\begingroup$ Thank you very much @cagliari2005 this is very close to what I am after, perhaps even better! Very thorough referencing, with useful "further information" sections $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 4, 2018 at 12:10

From the comment section:

The IUPHAR database is one of the most extensive database for receptors and ligands. It also contains a lot of additional information and direct references to the literature.
