Receptors adrenergic beta-2

receptors, adrenergic, beta-2

A subclass of beta-adrenergic receptors (receptors, adrenergic, beta). Beta-2 adrenergic receptors are more sensitive to epinephrine than to norepinephrine and have a high affinity for the agonist terbutaline. They are widespread, with clinically important roles in skeletal muscle, liver, and vascular, bronchial, gastrointestinal, and genitourinary smooth muscle.
