The alpha 2 2 adrenergic receptor or adrenoceptor is a g protein coupled receptor gpcr associated with the g i heterotrimeric g protein it consists of three highly homologous subtypes including 2a 2b and 2c adrenergic . Alpha 2 adrenergic receptor the alpha2 adrenergic receptor is the primary form found in the spinal dorsal horn that has an inhibitory role on the processing of sensory information. In early scientific theory of adrenergic mechanisms it was believed that adrenergic receptors were classified into 2 groups those whose actions resulted in either excitation or inhibition of effector cells 2 this theory was the accepted concept until ahlquist 2 demonstrated that there were 2 subtypes of receptors in the class which he termed and table 1. The types of sympathetic or adrenergic receptors are alpha beta 1 and beta 2 alpha receptors are located on the arteries when the alpha receptor is stimulated by epinephrine or norepinephrine
