Data Sheet

Background: Norepinephrine is implicated in a wide range of physiological processes through activation of nine different G-protein-coupled receptors (α1a, α1b, α1d, α2a, α2b, α2c, ß1, ß2, ß3). The human ß2-adrenergic receptor was the first 7- transmembrane receptor for a hormone or neurotransmitter to have its crystal structure solved. It has been suggested that the β2-adrenoceptor may form homodimers as well as oligomers with other receptors. The β2-adrenoceptor mediates the actions of catecholamines in multiple tissues. They are responsible for relaxation of vascular, uterine, and airway smooth muscle, and are involved in metabolic and endocrine functions.
