adrenoreceptor

adrenoreceptor

/adre·no·re·cep·tor/ (-re-sep´ter) adrenergic receptor.

ad·re·ner·gic re·cep·tors

(ad'rĕ-nĕr'jik rĕ-sep'tŏrz)
Reactive components of effector tissues, most of which are innervated by the sympathetic nervous system. Such receptors can be activated by norepinephrine, epinephrine, and adrenergic drugs; receptor activation results in a change in effector tissue function, such as contraction of arteriolar muscles or relaxation of bronchial muscles.
Synonym(s): adrenoreceptor.

ad·re·ner·gic re·cep·tors

(ad'rĕ-nĕr'jik rĕ-sep'tŏrz)
Reactive components of effector tissues, most of which are innervated by adrenergic postganglionic fibers of the sympathetic nervous system. Such receptors can be activated by norepinephrine and/or epinephrine and by various adrenergic drugs.
Synonym(s): adrenoceptor.

adrenoreceptor

a receptor essential to neurohumoral transmission, situated on or within the surface membranes of cells innervated by adrenergic neurons and in some cells which are not so innervated.
