Adrenergic receptors are key targets within the autonomic nervous system, regulating a wide variety of physiological processes. The ability to modify adrenergic receptor expression patterns in vivo has added a powerful new tool to the functional analysis of these receptors. Modification of adrenergic receptor gene expression by overexpression, genetic ablation, or site-specific mutation has added new insight to models of receptor coupling behavior, pharmacology, and subtype-specific physiological function. This review highlights some of the recent advances resulting from such genetic approaches to the study of adrenergic receptors.

Multiple mechanisms contribute to the regulation of G protein-coupled receptors and their transmembrane signaling. Post-translational modifications of the receptors, such as phosphorylation, and changes in receptor gene expression can occur in either a strictly agonist-dependent fashion or through second messenger-mediated autoregulation. We have shown that modulation of receptor gene expression contributes to the responsiveness of adrenergic and related receptors. Recent evidence for post-transcriptional regulation, as well as the stimulation of transcription in an autoregulatory manner, indicates the unanticipated variety and complexity of mechanisms regulating adrenergic receptor responsiveness.
