    The Role of Alpha-1 Adrenergic Receptor in Disease Adrenergic receptors are a class of G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) which are activated by catecholamines in the central and peripheral nervous systems. Alpha-1 adrenergic receptors (1-AR) are systematic vasoconstrictors: their activation constricts blood vessels by the contraction of vascular smooth muscle. These transmembrane receptors are activated by the binding of epinephrine or norepinephrine, which creates intracellular signals via…

    signals through autonomic nerves to the adrenal glands. The chromaffin cells in the glands are triggered and respond to the signals by pumping epinephrine or adrenaline into the bloodstream (Milosevic, McCabe). Epinephrine circulating through the bloodstream brings about a series of physiological changes. Some of the these are an increased heart rate, pulse, and blood pressure. Epinephrine acts on pacemaker cells in the heart, making them beat faster. The result of this is that the messenger and…
