Mouse anti Human beta-2 Adrenergic Receptor antibody, clone R11E1 recognizes human beta 2 adrenergic receptor (beta2AR), a member of the G protein-coupled receptor superfamily. Beta1 and Beta2 adrenergic receptors are functionally similar but have different affinities for the ligands adrenaline and noraderenaline. B2A receptors co-exist with the B1A receptors but one subtype usually predominates. B2A receptors have a higher affinity for adrenaline and mediate the relaxation of smooth muscle including bronchus, intestine & uterus. They are located presynaptically in the nerves, where they facilitate neurotransmitter release in the brain and regulate a variety of physiological processes. Ligand binding of the B2A receptor leads to the activation of adenylyl cyclase through interaction with the GTP-binding protein Gs.
