  • [Medicine]
    Specific sites or molecular structures on cell membranes or in cells with which phencyclidine reacts or to which it binds to elicit the specific response of the cell to phencyclidine.

These are the PCP/sigma site,which binds both PCP and psychotomimetic opiates but not certain antipsychotics,and the PCP site,which selectively binds PCP analogs.
