receptors, neurokinin-3

A class of cell surface receptors for tachykinins that prefers neurokinin b (neurokinin beta, neuromedin k) over other tachykinins. Neurokinin-3 (nk-3) receptors have been cloned and are members of the g-protein coupled receptor superfamily. They have been found in the central nervous system and in peripheral tissues.
