Compare and contrast the actions of G-Proteins and Ion-Gated channels.

Assignment Question

Question 2: Compare and contrast the actions of G-Proteins and Ion-Gated channels. Both G-Proteins Couple receptors (GPCRs) and Ion-gated channels are distinct types of cell membrane receptors that play an important role in cellular signing. Both are targets of psychotropic medications.

Reading the textbook, we learned that GPCRs often imply numerous steps in signal transduction, leading to slower and more maintained response.
