The adrenergic receptors of the intraocular muscles of the human eye

Investigative Ophthalmology

The adrenergic receptors in man were analyzed using isolated sphincter, dilator, and ciliary muscle strips, dissected from eyebank eyes. The dilator is mainly alpha, the sphincter both alpha and beta, and the ciliary muscle predominantly beta adrenergic.

Adrenergic Receptors: Trafficking

Adrenergic receptor trafficking is an active physiological process where adrenergic receptors are relocated from one region of the cell to another or from one type of cell to another. Discover the latest research on adrenergic receptor trafficking here.
