Adrenergic receptors (also called adrenoceptors) are the receptors for the catecholamines; adrenaline and noradrenaline (called epinephrine and norepinephrine in the United States). Adrenaline and noradrenaline play important roles in the control of blood pressure, myocardial contractile rate and force, airway reactivity, and a variety of metabolic and central nervous system functions.
All α1-adrenoceptors (α1-ARs) activate phospholipases C and A2.1
In addition to mobilizing intracellular calcium, the α1-ARs have also been shown to activate calcium influx via voltage-dependent and independent calcium channels.2
