Summaries for ADRA2A Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ADRA2A Gene

  • Alpha-2-adrenergic receptors are members of the G protein-coupled receptor superfamily. They include 3 highly homologous subtypes: alpha2A, alpha2B, and alpha2C. These receptors have a critical role in regulating neurotransmitter release from sympathetic nerves and from adrenergic neurons in the central nervous system. Studies in mouse revealed that both the alpha2A and alpha2C subtypes were required for normal presynaptic control of transmitter release from sympathetic nerves in the heart and from central noradrenergic neurons; the alpha2A subtype inhibited transmitter release at high stimulation frequencies, whereas the alpha2C subtype modulated neurotransmission at lower levels of nerve activity. This gene encodes alpha2A subtype and it contains no introns in either its coding or untranslated sequences. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for ADRA2A Gene

ADRA2A (Adrenoceptor Alpha 2A) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ADRA2A include Gilles De La Tourette Syndrome and Horner's Syndrome. Among its related pathways are Integrin alphaIIb beta3 signaling and Monoamine GPCRs. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and protein heterodimerization activity. An important paralog of this gene is ADRA2C.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ADRA2A Gene

  • 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 oxymetazoline > clonidine > epinephrine > norepinephrine > phenylephrine > dopamine > p-synephrine > p-tyramine > serotonin = p-octopamine. For antagonists, the rank order is yohimbine > phentolamine = mianserine > chlorpromazine = spiperone = prazosin > propanolol > alprenolol = pindolol.

Tocris Summary for ADRA2A Gene

  • Adrenergic alpha2 receptors (alpha2-adrenoceptors) are members of the adrenergic receptor group of G-protein-coupled receptors that also includes alpha1A, alpha1B, alpha1D, beta1, beta2 and beta3. Adrenergic alpha2 receptors are divided into three subtypes in humans: alpha2A, alpha2B and alpha2C.
