ADRA1B

Official Full Name
adrenoceptor alpha 1B
Background
Alpha-1-adrenergic receptors (alpha-1-ARs) are members of the G protein-coupled receptor superfamily. They activate mitogenic responses and regulate growth and proliferation of many cells. There are 3 alpha-1-AR subtypes: alpha-1A, -1B and -1D, all of which signal through the Gq/11 family of G-proteins and different subtypes show different patterns of activation. This gene encodes alpha-1B-adrenergic receptor, which induces neoplastic transformation when transfected into NIH 3T3 fibroblasts and other cell lines. Thus, this normal cellular gene is identified as a protooncogene. This gene comprises 2 exons and a single large intron of at least 20 kb that interrupts the coding region.
Synonyms
ADRA1B; adrenergic, alpha-1B-, receptor; alpha-1B adrenergic receptor; alpha-1B adrenoceptor; alpha-1B adrenoreceptor; alpha-1B-adrenergic receptor; ADRA1; ALPHA1BAR
