  • epinephrine
  • In addition, the lack of any guanylylimidodiphosphate effect on the l-epinephrine competition curve observed in MHS rats suggests the uncoupling of these receptors from the guanosine 5'-triphosphate binding protein. (ahajournals.org)
  • The majority of alpha-1 receptors are directed toward the function of epinephrine, a hormone that has to do with the fight-or-flight response. (wikipedia.org)
  • Effects

  • When methyldopa was first introduced, it was the mainstay of antihypertensive treatment, but its use has declined on account of relatively severe adverse side effects, with increased use of other safer and more tolerable agents such as alpha blockers, beta blockers, and calcium channel blockers. (wikipedia.org)
  • therapeutic
  • The paper concludes that in the Beta-Blocker Evaluation of Survival Trial (BEST) adrenergic polymorphism substudy, the norepinephrine lowering and clinical therapeutic responses to bucindolol were strongly influenced by the alpha-2C adrenergic receptor genotype. (drugs.com)
  • These data indicate that in heart failure patients in the study, the norepinephrine lowering effects of bucindolol are under genetic control, and that the degree of lowering may be kept in a therapeutic range by baseline screening using alpha-2C-adrenergic receptor genetic biomarkers," said Michael R. Bristow, President and Chief Executive Officer of ARCA. (drugs.com)
  • In this study, patients who were homozygous for, or carried only, the wild type ("Ins") alpha-2C- receptor gene (87% of the total) had mild reductions in norepinephrine, which were associated with clinical therapeutic responses that were enhanced compared to the entire cohort investigated in the substudy. (drugs.com)
  • agonists
  • The invention herein is directed to prevention of desensitization of receptors to activation by agonists. (google.com)
  • Care should be taken to rule out other causes of adrenergic (adrenaline-like) excess like hypoglycemia, stress, exercise, and drugs affecting the catecholamines like stimulants, methyldopa, dopamine agonists, or ganglion blocking antihypertensives. (wikipedia.org)
  • Prazosin
  • First generation alpha-1 blockers, like prazosin are not recommended to treat lower urine tract symptoms because of their blood pressure lowering effect. (wikipedia.org)
  • Prazosin which is commonly used as antihypertension but because of the alpha-1 adrenergic activity of Prazosin, that activity has been connected to fear and startle responses. (wikipedia.org)
  • This is also the case for Tamsulosin and it may be assumed that the others alpha-1 blockers work in a similar manner, since Tamsulosin is a alpha-1-a blocker and Prazosin is a alpha-1 blocker. (wikipedia.org)
  • novel
  • There is an urgent need, therefore, to identify well-tolerated, orally available compounds that target the NMDA receptor as a novel treatment approach for TRD. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • genetic
  • Furthermore, we believe alpha-2C-receptor genetic biomarkers may be combined with the already reported beta1 receptor position 389 genetic biomarkers to define which patients are most likely to respond to this pharmacologically unique beta-blocking agent. (drugs.com)
  • sympathetic
  • Ephedrine is a sympathomimetic amine - that is, its principal mechanism of action relies on its direct and indirect actions on the adrenergic receptor system, which is part of the sympathetic nervous system. (drugbank.ca)
  • amino
  • The amino acid sequences of both receptors contain high proportions of hydrophobic residues grouped into 7 domains, in a manner reminiscent of the rhodopsins and other receptors believed to interact with G-proteins. (wikipedia.org)
  • The intracellular portion contains an amino (-NH 2) group and carboxyl (-COOH) group. (wikipedia.org)
  • Doses
  • Doses >4 g/day (2 g in alcoholics) may cause liver, kidney or heart problems. (1mg.com)
  • regulatory
  • Usually these drug candidates can access the accelerated 505(b)(2) regulatory approval pathway, which is generally less time-consuming and less expensive than the typical 505(b)(1) pathway that must be used for new chemical entities. (drugs.com)
  • blockers
  • It has a slower onset and a longer-lasting effect compared with other alpha blockers. (wikipedia.org)
  • Alpha-1 blockers (also called alpha-adrenergic blocking agents) constitute a variety of drugs that block alpha-1-adrenergic receptors in arteries, smooth muscles, and central nervous system tissues. (wikipedia.org)
  • Alpha-1 blockers are used to treat those symptoms. (wikipedia.org)
  • Alpha-1 blockers are first line treatment for the symptoms of BPH in men. (wikipedia.org)
  • In some cases alpha-1 blockers have been used in combined therapy with 5-alpha reductase blockers. (wikipedia.org)
  • Alpha-1 blockers are used as second line treatment for high blood pressure. (wikipedia.org)
  • Terazosin is also safe and effective to use against hypertension and BPH but is of first generation while doxazosin is second generation alpha-1 blockers. (wikipedia.org)
  • As Alpha-1-a blockers affect the symptoms of BPH more specifically than the Alpha-1 blockers, the adverse effects seem to be more linked to the reproductive system while minimizing the effect on the blood-pressure system. (wikipedia.org)
  • For this reason, it is generally recommended that alpha blockers should be taken at bedtime. (wikipedia.org)
  • This is especially the case for Tamsulosin and other alpha-1-a blockers, since alpha-1-a receptors are present also in the iris dilator muscle, which allows unopposed action of the parasympathetically innervated iris constrictor muscle and loss of iris tone. (wikipedia.org)
  • Contraindication : Allergies or hypersensitivity to alpha-1 blockers or any of the active ingredient, that includes angiodema induced by the drug. (wikipedia.org)
  • effects
  • It was also the first alpha blocker to be used for treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia, although it is currently seldom used for that indication due to unfavourable side effects. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is therefore important when starting treatment with a alpha-1 blocker to monitor the blood pressure to minimize the risk for adverse effects connected to low blood pressure. (wikipedia.org)
  • syndrome
  • The risk for floppy iris syndrome during cataract surgery is elevated when the patient is using a alpha-1 blocker. (wikipedia.org)
  • complex
  • The subcellular distribution of early endosomes is affected by the annexin II2p11(2) complex. (mpg.de)
  • It is believed that two KCNE1 proteins interact with a tetrameric KvLQT1 channel, since experimental data suggests that there are 4 alpha subunits and 2 beta subunits in this complex. (wikipedia.org)
  • blood pressure
