If you’ve taken a biochemistry class, you may get that our name is derived from the Ligand/Receptor interaction at the cellular level. It’s essentially the human body’s idea of a “lock and key" mechanism. There are thousands of these complex “lock and key” mechanisms in the body. The Ligand is an ion or molecule that binds to the Receptor to trigger a specific reaction. This Ligand/Receptor interaction causes cell mechanisms to turn on/off and aid in the homeostasis and function of a cell. Since our compounds work at this cellular “lock and key” level, we felt “Lig & Ceptor” was an appropriate name.
