alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazolepropionic acid

(Science: chemical) Alpha-amino-2,3-dihydro-5-methyl-3-oxo-4-isoxazolepropanoic acid. An ibotenic acid homolog and glutamate agonist. The compound is the defining agonist for the ampa subtype of glutamate receptors (receptors, ampa). It has been used as a radionuclide imaging agent but is more commonly used as an experimental tool in cell biological studies.

Pharmacological action: excitatory amino acid agonists.

Hyperadrenergic POTS

... pharmacological NET inhibition can recreate an orthostatic tachycardia phenotype in susceptible healthy volunteer subjects. Yohimbine, a central alpha-2 antagonist that will also increase synaptic norepinephrine, can also cause orthostatic tachycardia. How do you test for a genetic hNET mutation? ...

Bacterial Taxonomy

... nitrogen gas to ammonia is unique to Cyanobacteria. Proteobacteria are very, very diverse and better discussed in terms of the individual classes alpha, beta, gamma, delta, and epsilon. Prosthecae indicate membership in alphaproteobacteria. And I'll leave it at that for now.

unbalanced gender ratios of offspring

... I am not sure on this. Even if primates organize into polygynous groups, the females probably won't remain faithful. Furthermore, nobody is alpha male for life. They get old, weak, and frail, and some young guy kicks their groin. One male impregnating several females reduces genetic diversity ...
