Gene: Adra2b (adrenoceptor alpha 2B) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Adra2b
Name: adrenoceptor alpha 2B
RGD ID: 2057
Description: Enables alpha2-adrenergic receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including female pregnancy; positive regulation of MAPK cascade; and regulation of smooth muscle contraction. Predicted to be located in cell surface; cytosol; and intracellular membrane-bounded organelle. Predicted to be active in plasma membrane. Used to study hypertension. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in diabetic neuropathy; hypertension; myocardial infarction; obesity; and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human ADRA2B (adrenoceptor alpha 2B); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; ammonium chloride; C60 fullerene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Previously known as: Adrenergic alpha2B- receptor class III; adrenergic receptor, alpha 2b; adrenergic, alpha-2B-, receptor; Adrenergic, alpha2B-, receptor class III; alpha-2B adrenergic receptor; alpha-2B adrenoceptor; alpha-2B adrenoreceptor; alpha-2BAR
