Are there any over-the-counter adrenergic receptors i can get?

No: No adrenergic receptors are for sale with or without a prescription. If you mean adrenergic receptor stimulators I would advise against self medication. ...Read more

Receptor (Definition)

An organ, cell or molecule that accepts an outside signal and causes an internal change. Eyes receive light, touch receptors send messages to the brain when stimulated by pressure and estrogen receptors bind Estradiol causing responses of normal breast, ovary and uterus cells to rising and falling levels of the female steroid hormones. Most of the time "receptor" refers to one ...Read more

What adrenergic receptors does vasopressin bind to?

What adrenergic receptors does vasopressin bind to?

It doesn't: Hi. Vasopressin (aka antidiuretic hormone) does not bind to adrenergic receptors. Vasopression has its own family of receptors expressed in the vasculature and kidneys. ...Read more

Can overuse of a centrally acting stimulant like Pseudoephedrine trigger apermanent change in adrenergic receptors...hypersensitive sympathetic systm?

Can overuse of a centrally acting stimulant like Pseudoephedrine trigger apermanent change in adrenergic receptors...hypersensitive sympathetic systm?

Not likely: Adrenergic drugs are used to manage sympathetically maintained pain. They act either presynaptically on the neuron or postsynaptically on receptors located on the effector organ. They may affect receptors that are stimulated by norepinephrine (NE) or epinephrine, or interrupt the release of NE from noradrenergic neurons. ...Read more

Does cardiology office do LDL receptor gene mutation screening? If not, where can it be done? Does insurance cover cost? What's the cost if self pay?

Does cardiology office do LDL receptor gene mutation screening? If not, where can it be done? Does insurance cover cost? What's the cost if self pay?

Possibly: Certainly, a cardiologist's office can help facilitate testing. Coverage for testing is variable and you would need to consult your insurer. ...Read more

Not Standard Care: Doctors in the US generally do not send genetic analyses as detailed as yours b/c we do not fully know what to do with results like that which may not bear significance on future pregnancies. We usually examine chromosomes but not genes. Is that genetic analysis from YOU or from the remnants of the pregnancy? For more information, see a genetic counselor. ...Read more

Could you please describe how drugs that target the adrenergic receptors of the sympathetic nervous system can be useful for treatment of disease?

Could you please describe how drugs that target the adrenergic receptors of the sympathetic nervous system can be useful for treatment of disease?

Reducing load on: heart. There are many organs affected by the sympathetic system. One way drugs blocking the beta receptors for adreneric agents is by reducing the load on heart. These are used to treat patients with heart disease and Marfan's syndrome. This is a limited amount information on the subject. You may consult this site. http://www.uky.edu/~mtp/OBI836AR.html ...Read more

What happens to the insulin receptors to make them insulin resistant?

What happens to the insulin receptors to make them insulin resistant?

Great question!: If you figure that one out, you will probably win the nobel prize in medicine. There are easily over 100 different defects in Insulin signaling (how Insulin talks to cells) which have been described in type 2 diabetic patients, ranging from mild to severe. That's one of the reasons why coming up with a cure for this disease is so difficult. ...Read more

Is there a way to bind to aptopsis inducing Fas receptor sites without activating the aptopsis process?

Is there a way to bind to aptopsis inducing Fas receptor sites without activating the aptopsis process?

Yes: Certain studies in cancer cells shows that binding of CD95 does not necessarily induce apoptosis; in one particular study it was also revealed that the extrinsic and intrinsic pathway may be linked, since Fas was found at the level of the mitochondria, but without activating of any caspases with engagement. ...Read more

Which opioid has the highest affinity for mu-opioid receptors?

Which opioid has the highest affinity for mu-opioid receptors?

Morphine & Methadone: Morphine, the prototype of opioid analgesics, is a full "pure" agonist of the mu receptor. Methadone, a synthetic mu agonist opioid, has pharmaceutical activity very similar to morphine. ...Read more

Are brca hormone receptors?

No: Brca genes are important in repairing damaged dna. Mutations in these genes allow defective dna to replicate and turn the cells with defective dna into turmors. ...Read more

What is a hormone receptor for?

What is a hormone receptor for?

For an effect: The receptor is the area on the surface of a cell to which a hormone binds in order for the hormone to have an effect on the cell. For example, estrogen binds to its receptor on or in the cell and then the cell changes its behavior in response to the estrogen. Most hormones won't do anything unless they first bind to a cell receptor. ...Read more

What do h2 receptors in the heart do?

What do h2 receptors in the heart do?

H2 receptors: This is an excellent question. After reviewing the literature, I can say that I don't think we really know. There are various things possible that they do but a solid study with consistent results other than in rats or pigs, I couldn't find. ...Read more

Mutation (Definition)

In genetics, a mutation is a change in the nucleotide sequence of the genome of an organism, virus, or extrachromosomal genetic element. Mutations result from unrepaired damage to dna or to RNA genomes (typically caused by radiation or chemical mutagens), from errors in the process of replication, or from the insertion or deletion of segments of dna ...Read more
