Alpha2B receptor

Name: Alpha2B receptor
Description: This a subtype of the Alpha2 adrenergic receptor that is found in neonatal rat lung that has a high affinity for prazosin. Alpha-2-adrenergic receptors include 3 highly homologous subtypes: alpha2A, alpha2B, and alpha2C. These receptors have a critical role in regulating neurotransmitter release from sympathetic nerves and from adrenergic neurons in the central nervous system. (Adapted from Entrez Gene).
Synonym(s): alpha2B; alpha 2B; A2B; Alpha-2 adrenergic receptor subtype C2; Alpha-2B adrenoceptor; Alpha-2B adrenoreceptor; Alpha-2B adrenergic receptor
Abbreviation: A2BR
Is part of: Catecholamine system, Adrenergic system, Noradrenergic system
Has role: Adrenoceptor receptor, Neurotransmitter Receptor, G-protein coupled receptor
