melatonin signaling pathway 
Melatonin, in human and other organisms derived from tryptophan, is a monoamine with antioxidant properties and involved in the synchronization of the circadian rhythms. Melatonin signals through three receptors types of which two are present in humans and other mammals. They are G protein coupled receptors (GPCR).
