Beta-adrenergic agonist

Beta-adrenergic agonist

Beta-adrenergic agonists are adrenergic agonists which act upon the beta receptors. [MeshName|Adrenergic+beta-Agonists]

β1 agonists

β1 agonists: stimulates adenylyl cyclase activity; opening of calcium channel. (cardiac stimulants; used to treat cardiogenic shock, acute heart failure, bradyarrhythmias). Selected examples are:
* Dobutamine
* Isoproterenol1 and β2)

β2 agonists

β2 agonists: stimulates adenylyl cyclase activity; closing of calcium channel (smooth muscle relaxants; used to treat asthma and COPD). Selected examples are:
* salbutamol (albuterol in USA)
* Fenoterol
* Formoterol
* Isoproterenol1 and β2)
* Metaproterenol
* Salmeterol
* Terbutaline
* Clenbuterol
