Parent Terms Term With Siblings Child Terms
anterograde axonal transport of neurotransmitter receptor complex 
anterograde dendritic transport of neurotransmitter receptor complex  
neurotransmitter receptor cycle +   
The process during which neurotransmitter receptors, anchored in some region of the synaptic membrane, are recycled via the endosome. This cycle includes release from anchoring, diffusion in the synaptic membrane to an endocytic region, endocytosis, transport to the endosome, recycling in the endosome, transport back the synaptic membrane and subsequent anchoring (trapping).
