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).
The alpha-1D adrenergic receptor (α1D adrenoreceptor), also known as ADRA1D, is an alpha-1 adrenergic receptor, and also denotes the human gene encoding it.
The alpha-2 (α2) adrenergic receptor (or adrenoceptor) is a G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) associated with the Gi heterotrimeric G-protein.
The central nervous system (CNS) is the part of the nervous system consisting of the brain and spinal cord.
Chemical synapses are biological junctions through which neurons' signals can be exchanged to each other and to non-neuronal cells such as those in muscles or glands.
The coding region of a gene, also known as the CDS (from CoDing Sequence), is that portion of a gene's DNA or RNA that codes for protein.
In biology, a gene is a sequence of DNA or RNA that codes for a molecule that has a function.
The heart is a muscular organ in most animals, which pumps blood through the blood vessels of the circulatory system.
An intron is any nucleotide sequence within a gene that is removed by RNA splicing during maturation of the final RNA product.
Neurotransmitters are endogenous chemicals that enable neurotransmission.
A non-coding RNA (ncRNA) is an RNA molecule that is not translated into a protein.
Risperidone, sold under the trade name Risperdal among others, is an antipsychotic medication.
Spiroxatrine is a drug which acts as a selective antagonist at both the 5-HT1A receptor and the α2C adrenergic receptor.
The sympathetic nervous system (SNS) is one of the two main divisions of the autonomic nervous system, the other being the parasympathetic nervous system.
Yohimbine is an indole alkaloid derived from the bark of the Pausinystalia yohimbe tree in Central Africa.
(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.
