ADRA2A

A gene on chromosome 10q24-q26 that encodes alpha-2A-adrenergic receptor, a member of the G protein-coupled receptor superfamily, which plays a critical role in regulating neurotransmitter release from sympathetic nerves and from adrenergic neurons in the CNS, smooth muscle contraction and thermoregulation.
