Gene: Adra1a (adrenoceptor alpha 1A) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Adra1a
Name: adrenoceptor alpha 1A
Description: Exhibits alpha1-adrenergic receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including modulation of chemical synaptic transmission; positive regulation of blood circulation; and regulation of intracellular signal transduction. Localizes to several cellular components, including Z disc; dopaminergic synapse; and integral component of synaptic membrane. Used to study bladder neck obstruction. Biomarker of hypertension and polycystic ovary syndrome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Alzheimer's disease and hypertension. Orthologous to human ADRA1A (adrenoceptor alpha 1A); PARTICIPATES IN alfentanil pharmacodynamics pathway; bupivacaine pharmacodynamics pathway; buprenorphine pharmacodynamics pathway; INTERACTS WITH (6aR,9R)-N-[(2S)-1-hydroxybutan-2-yl]-4,7-dimethyl-6,6a,8,9-tetrahydroindolo[4,3-fg]quinoline-9-carboxamide; (R)-adrenaline; (R)-noradrenaline.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: Adra1c; adrenergic alpha 1c receptor; adrenergic receptor alpha 1c; adrenergic receptor alpha 1c subtype; adrenergic receptor, alpha 1a; adrenergic receptor, alpha 1c; adrenergic, alpha-1A-, receptor; alpha 1A-adrenoceptor; alpha 1A-adrenoreceptor; alpha 1C-adrenergic receptor; alpha-1A adrenergic receptor; alpha-1A adrenoceptor; alpha-1A adrenoreceptor; alpha-1C adrenergic receptor
