Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits alpha1-adrenergic receptor activity. Involved in negative regulation of the force of heart contraction involved in baroreceptor response to increased systemic arterial blood pressure; neuron-glial cell signaling; and norepinephrine-epinephrine vasoconstriction involved in regulation of systemic arterial blood pressure. Predicted to localize to cytosol and integral component of plasma membrane. Is expressed in diencephalon and forebrain. Orthologous to human ADRA1D (adrenoceptor alpha 1D).
