a-2C adrenergic receptor or a-2 Adrenergic Receptor Subtype C4 is encoded by the gene ADRA2C. It belongs to the Adrenergic receptor subfamily of G-protein coupled receptors. a-2C adrenergic receptors mediate catecholamine-induced inhibition of adenylate cyclase by the action of G proteins. a-2C adrenergic is involved in the regulation of neurotransmitter release from sympathetic nerves and adrenergic neurons. a-2C adrenergic receptors are expressed in brain, kidney and heart. Diseases associated with ADRA2C include Raynaud Phenomenon.
