Biogenic amine receptors

L. L. Iversen, S. H. Snyder, S. D. Iversen

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Unlike the traditional biogenic amine research which concentrates on presynaptic events, this volume focuses on the postsynaptic actions of biogenic amines, including norepinephrine, dopamine, serotonin and acetylcholine. Outstanding contributors review studies of postsynaptic autoreceptors, the role of prostaglandins in regulating neurotransmitter release, and the important work on the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor of electric organs. Specific topics include: amine receptors in CNS norepinephrine, dopamine and 5-hydroxytryptamine; acetylcholine receptors in vertebrate CNS; receptor feedback and dopamine turnover in CNS; basic mechanisms and local feedback control of secretion of adrenergic and cholinergic neurotransmitters; and the cholinergic receptor protein from fish electric organ.
