alpha 2-adrenergic receptor
Involvement of signaling pathways in bovine sperm motility, and effect of ergot alkaloids.
Fayetteville, United States. In In Vitro Cell Dev Biol Anim, 2009
Relative sperm motility (motility of treated spermatozoa normalized to control sperm motility) was increased (p < 0.05) when co-incubations included ET and yohimbine (alpha 2-adrenergic receptor inhibitor); conversely, co-incubation of yohimbine (100 microM) and DHET decreased (p < 0.05) the percentage of motile spermatozoa when compared with controls.
Pharmacological approach to functional reorganization: the role of norepinephrine.
Durham, United States. In Rev Neurol (paris), 1998
Drugs that deplete central norepinephrine, block alpha 1-adrenergic receptors, or decrease norepinephrine release (alpha 2-adrenergic receptor agonists) impede recovery whereas drugs that increase norepinephrine release (alpha 2-adrenergic receptor antagonists) or sympathomimetics (amphetamine) facilitate recovery.
New approaches to rapid onset antidepressants.
Indianapolis, United States. In Curr Pharm Des, 1998
These approaches include combinations of SSRI activity with either NA reuptake inhibition or 5-HT1A-, 5-HT2-, or alpha 2-adrenergic receptor specificity, as well as targeting interactions with specific receptor subtypes (5-HT1A, 5-HT1A/5-HT2, 5-HT1B/D, alpha 2/5-HT2, D2/D3).
