Previous GeneCards Identifiers for ADRA1D Gene
Alpha-1-adrenergic receptors (alpha-1-ARs) are members of the G protein-coupled receptor superfamily. They activate mitogenic responses and regulate growth and proliferation of many cells. There are 3 alpha-1-AR subtypes: alpha-1A, -1B and -1D, all of which signal through the Gq/11 family of G-proteins and different subtypes show different patterns of activation. This gene encodes alpha-1D-adrenergic receptor. Similar to alpha-1B-adrenergic receptor gene, this gene comprises 2 exons and a single intron that interrupts the coding region.

GeneCards Summary for ADRA1D Gene
ADRA1D (Adrenoceptor Alpha 1D) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ADRA1D include Prostatic Hyperplasia, Benign and Hyperekplexia. Among its related pathways are Translation Translation regulation by Alpha-1 adrenergic receptors and Monoamine GPCRs. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and alpha1-adrenergic receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is ADRA1B.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ADRA1D Gene
This alpha-adrenergic receptor mediates its effect through the influx of extracellular calcium.
Adrenergic alpha1 receptors (alpha1-adrenoceptors) are members of the adrenergic receptor group of G-protein-coupled receptors that also includes alpha2A, alpha2B, alpha2C, beta1, beta2 and beta3. The adrenergic alpha1 receptors are further divided into three subtypes: alpha1A, alpha1B and alpha1D receptors.
