1) Please confirm that receptors are openings that are found on a blood cell?
2) Is it true that blood cells create receptors for different things, like nutrients and sugar and maybe drugs once they are exposed? Do the cells seek out or crave the element that the receptor was created to want? What happens if the receptor does not find that thing? Like alcoholic stops drinking... now what? Does the cell die? Or does it just close the receptor? Or will the receptor remain open for the life of the cell - seeking out the "match?"
3) I've had a blood transfusion. What happens to those "new" cells and the receptors they have that were created by another person? Will it effect their behavior and by definition, me?
4) What happens to a cell without a receptor for alcohol being exposed to one with a receptor for alcohol? Does one change the other?
Thanks, This will really help me.
