Parent topics

  • Stress (physiology) [r]: Pathological process resulting from the reaction of the body to external forces and conditions that tend to disturb the organism's homeostasis. [e]

Hormones

Disorders

Modulators

  • Adrenergic agent [r]: Drugs that act on adrenergic receptors or affect the life cycle of adrenergic transmitters. [e]
  • Adrenergic beta-agonist [r]: Class of drugs used to treat asthma and other pulmonary disease states. [e]
  • Adrenergic beta-antagonist [r]: Drugs that bind to but do not activate beta-adrenergic receptors thereby blocking the actions of beta-adrenergic agonists. Adrenergic beta-antagonists are used for treatment of hypertension, cardiac arrhythmias, angina pectoris, glaucoma, migraine headaches, and anxiety. [e]
  • Adrenergic uptake inhibitor [r]: Drug which acts as a reuptake inhibitor for the neurotransmitters norepinephrine and epinephrine by blocking the action of the norepinephrine transporter. [e]

Receptors

  • Adrenergic receptor [r]: Cell-surface proteins that bind epinephrine and/or norepinephrine with high affinity and trigger intracellular changes. The two major classes of adrenergic receptors, alpha and beta, were originally discriminated based on their cellular actions but now are distinguished by their relative affinity for characteristic synthetic ligands.
