You are quite correct, Miguel, the LSD molecule is considerably more complex . On the other hand, it is known that several metabolites of LSD exist that are less complex. They may be the ones responsible for remission.
I suspect that the part of the molecule that attaches to the receptor is the indole part, leaving the "superstructure" waving free in the breeze, so to speak. That is to say that the receptor does not completely engulf the entire LSD molecule.
I am not as up on my molecular biology as I used to be... any molecular biologists out there that can say for sure whether the molecule is engulfed or just attached?
