Definition This a subtype of the Alpha2 adrenergic re 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.
