Steroids exert long-term modulatory effects on numerous physiological functions by acting at intracellular/nuclear receptors influencing gene transcription. Steroids and neurosteroids can also rapidly modulate membrane excitability and synaptic transmission by interacting with ion channels, that is, ionotropic neurotransmitter receptors or voltage-dependent Ca2+ or K+ channels. More recently, the cloning of a plasma membrane-located G protein-coupled receptor for progestins in various species...[Show more]
