Neurotransmitter(Shinkei Denta Tsutsutsu,British: Neurotransmitters) IsSynapseIt is a substance that mediates information transmission. Presynaptic cells have a neurotransmitter synthesis system, and postsynaptic cells have neurotransmitters.ReceptorThere is. Neurotransmitters are inactivated after release. Zinc ions that affect postsynaptic cellsNitric oxideIs a neurotransmitter in a broad sense.hormoneIs also an intercellular transmitterAperture releaseAnd binds to the receptor. Neurotransmitters act locally, and hormones act globally through the circulatory system and the like.AgonistとAntagonistHas the same effect.

After release

Neurotransmitters can be broadly classified into the following three types.

  1. amino acid(Glutamic acid,γ-aminobutyric acid,Aspartic acid,glycineSuch)
  2. peptideKind (Vasopressin,Somatostatin,Such)
  3. MonoamineKind (Noradrenaline,Dopamine,Serotonin)Whenacetylcholine

MoreNitric oxide,Carbon monoxideSuch asgasMolecules also exhibit neurotransmitter-like action.
