General pharm

G-protein linked second messengers

alpha-1 receptor Gq increase vascular s. muscle contraction, increase pupillary dilator m. contraction (mydriasis), increase intestinal and bladder sphincter m. contraction
alpha 2 receptor Gi decrease sympathetic outflow, decrease insulin release, decrease lipolysis, increase platelet aggregation, decrease aqueous humor production
Beta 1 receptor increase HR, contractility, renin release, lipolysis Gs
Beta 2 receptor Gs Vasodilation, bronchodilation, increase lipolysis, increase insulin release, decrease uterine tone , ciliary m relaxation, increase aqueous humor prod.
Beta 3 receptor Gs increase lipolysis, increase thermogenesis in s. muscle
M1 receptor Gq CNS, enteric nervous system
M2 receptor Gi decrease HR and contractility of the atria
M3 receptor Gq increase exocrine gland secretions, increase gut peristalsis, increase bladder contraction, bronchoconstriction, increase pupillary sphincter m. contraction (miosis), ciliary m contraction (accommodiation)
D1 receptor Gs relaxes renal vascular s. muscle, activates direct pathway of striatum
D2 receptor Gi Modulates transmitter release in the brain, inhibits indirect pathway of striatum
H1 receptor Gq increase nasal adn bronchial mucus prod., increase vascular permeability, contraction of bronchioles, pruritus, pain
H2 receptor Gs increase gastric acid secretion
V1 receptor Gq increase vascular smooth m. contraction
V2 receptor Gs increase H2O permeability and reabsorption in collecting tubules of kidney
Gq Activation of phospholipase C In lipids, phospholipase C breaks PIP2--> DAG and IP3 DAG--->Protein Kinase C IP3--> increase intracellular Ca2+ concentration---> smooth m. contraction
Gs activation of adenylate cyclase--> ATP converted to cAMP cAMP activates protein kinase A--->increase intracellular Ca2+ concentration in heart
Gi Inhibits adenylate cyclase decrease cAMP--->no cAMP dependent protein kinase ---> inhibition myosin light chain kinase (smooth m.)

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
