Protein Overview: Alpha-2B adrenergic receptor

Alpha-2 adrenergic receptors mediate the catecholamine-induced inhibition of adenylate cyclase through the action of G proteins. The rank order of potency for agonists of this receptor is clonidine > norepinephrine > epinephrine = oxymetazoline > dopamine > p-tyramine = phenylephrine > serotonin > p-synephrine / p-octopamine. For antagonists, the rank order is yohimbine > chlorpromazine > phentolamine > mianserine > spiperone > prazosin > alprenolol > propanolol > pindolol.

Synonyms: Alpha-2B adrenoreceptor, Alpha-2B adrenoceptor, Alpha-2BAR

Gene name: ADRA2B
