Receptor Animations
We work with scientists to design animated presentations that correspond with their research and lecture objectives. Overall our goal is to make science easier to understand and more engaging.
Introduction to Receptors»

Receptors receive chemical signals that give commands to the cell.

2 Major Classes

Receptors are proteins which can be cell surface receptors - embedded in the cell membrane or intracellular receptors - inside the cell.

Class 1: Cell Surface Receptors

Can be divided into several categories:

Class 2: Intracellular receptors

Can be divided into 2 general categories:

  • Cytoplasmic- in the cytoplasm of the cell
  • Nuclear- in the nucleus of the cell
