Alpha-2C adrenergic receptor

Index Alpha-2C adrenergic receptor

The alpha-2C adrenergic receptor (α2C adrenoceptor), also known as ADRA2C, is an alpha-2 adrenergic receptor, and also denotes the human gene encoding it. [1]

Adrenergic receptor

The adrenergic receptors (or adrenoceptors) are a class of G protein-coupled receptors that are targets of the catecholamines, especially norepinephrine (noradrenaline) and epinephrine (adrenaline).

(R)-3-Nitrobiphenyline

(R)-3-Nitrobiphenyline is a drug which acts as an α2-adrenergic agonist, selective for the α2C subtype, as well as being a weak antagonist at the α2A and α2B subtypes.
