  20. ________ are mediators released from mast cells upon contact with allergens.
  21. What are adreneric receptors in the sympathetic system?
    • they are receptors on the postsynaptic nerves that interact with norepinephrine that has crossed the synaptic cleft.
    • specialized adrenergic receptors exists on the membranes of target organs that interact with both epinephrine and norepinephrine.
  22. Examples of Alpha 1 receptors
    • contriction, arterioles
    • constriction, veins
    • mydriasis, eye
    • ejaculation, penis
  23. Examples of Alpha 2 receptor
    • presynaptic terminals inhibition
    • (stimulation of Alpha 2 adrenergic receptors inhibits the continued release of norepinephrine from the presynaptic terminal. It is a feedback mechanism that limits the adrenergic response at that synapse. These receptors have no other identified peripheral effects.)
  24. Examples of Beta 1 receptors
    • increased heart rate, heart
    • increased conductivity
    • increased automaticity
    • increased contractility
    • renin release, kidney

  27. Examples of Dopaminergic receptor
    vasodilation (increased blood flow), kidney
  28. Compare the effects of stimulating vs blocking of Alpha, Beta and Dopaminergic receptors?
    (probably an essay question)
    stimulating alpha1 will promote fight/flight (ie constrict arterioles and veins, mydriasis the eyes). when alpha1 is blocked it will inhibit the fight/flight. beta1 is similar to alpha1 in that it prepares for fight/flight (ie increased heartrate, conductivity, automaticity and contractility). blocking beta1 will inhibit the fight/flight. if you inhibit alpha1 and beta1 you will provide an opportunity for the parasympathetic nervous system to prosper. beta2 stimulation is conducive to feed/breed (ie bronchodialtion, arterioles dialation). it allows for a more normal less stressful state. blocking beta3 will allow for the sympathetic nervous system to prosper. dopaminergic stimulation causes vasodilation that will provide conditions for a more normal state since the important organs for fight/flight do not need the increased bloodflow and other parts of the body may reep the benefit.
