Biogenic Amines .
Biogenic Amine .
Amine, Biogenic .
Amines, Biogenic .
A group of naturally occurring amines derived by enzymatic decarboxylation of the natural amino acids. Many have powerful physiological effects (e.g., histamine, serotonin, epinephrine, tyramine). Those derived from aromatic amino acids, and also their synthetic analogs (e.g., amphetamine), are of use in pharmacology. .
Receptors, Biogenic Amine .
Biogenic Amine Receptor .
Biogenic Amines Receptors .
Receptors, Biogenic Amines .
Receptor, Biogenic Amine .
Biogenic Amine Receptors .
Cell surface proteins that bind biogenic amines with high affinity and regulate intracellular signals which influence the behavior of cells. Biogenic amine is a chemically imprecise term which, by convention, includes the catecholamines epinephrine, norepinephrine, and dopamine, the indoleamine serotonin, the imidazolamine histamine, and compounds closely related to each of these. .
