Differential Distribution of a2A and a2C Adrenergic Receptor Immunoreactivity in the Rat Spinal Cord


a2-Adrenergic receptors (a2-ARs) mediate a number of physiological phenomena, including spinal analgesia. We have developed subtype-selective antisera against the C termini of the a2A-AR and a2C-AR to investigate the relative distribution and cellular source or sources of these receptor subtypes in the rat spinal cord. Immunoreactivity (IR) for both… (More)
