Lurasidone in the treatment of schizophrenia: a critical evaluation.
Gainesville, United States. In Expert Opin Pharmacother, 2014
EXPERT OPINION: Lurasidone is a benzoisothiazole with potent dopamine D2 and serotonin 5HT2A antagonist and serotonin 5HT1A partial agonist properties (like other second-generation antipsychotic agents) with additional potent 5HT7 and alpha2C noradrenergic antagonism.

Białystok, Poland. In Kardiol Pol, 2005
Other genetic factors, which may affect are different gene variants of adrenergic receptors (beta1, beta2, alpha2C), AMP deaminase-1, endothelin-1, endothelial nitric oxide syntase, precursors of natriuretic peptides and inflammatory factors (TNF-alpha, IL-6, MCP-1, TGF, MMP-2).
Vascular adrenoceptors: an update.
Porto, Portugal. In Pharmacol Rev, 2001
Instead, the endothelium is an important organ possessing at least five different adrenoceptor subtypes (alpha2A/D, alpha2C, beta1, beta2, and beta3), which either directly or through the release of nitric oxide actively participate in the regulation of the vascular tone.
Two functionally distinct alpha2-adrenergic receptors regulate sympathetic neurotransmission.
Würzburg, Germany. In Nature, 1999
Alpha2-adrenergic receptors are known to have a critical role in regulating neurotransmitter release from sympathetic nerves and from adrenergic neurons in the central nervous system; however, the individual roles of the three highly homologous alpha2-adrenergic-receptor subtypes (alpha2A, alpha2B, alpha2C) in this process are not known.
