Roles Classification
Biological Role(s): beta-adrenergic agonist
An agent that selectively binds to and activates beta-adrenergic receptors.
dopaminergic agent
A drug used for its effects on dopamine receptors, on the life cycle of dopamine, or on the survival of dopaminergic neurons.
sympathomimetic agent
A drug that mimics the effects of stimulating postganglionic adrenergic sympathetic nerves. Included in this class are drugs that directly stimulate adrenergic receptors and drugs that act indirectly by provoking the release of adrenergic transmitters.
human metabolite
Any mammalian metabolite produced during a metabolic reaction in humans (Homo sapiens).
molecular messenger

(via monoamine molecular messenger )
Application(s): cardiotonic drug
A drug that has a strengthening effect on the heart or that can increase cardiac output.
beta-adrenergic agonist
An agent that selectively binds to and activates beta-adrenergic receptors.
dopaminergic agent
A drug used for its effects on dopamine receptors, on the life cycle of dopamine, or on the survival of dopaminergic neurons.
sympathomimetic agent
A drug that mimics the effects of stimulating postganglionic adrenergic sympathetic nerves. Included in this class are drugs that directly stimulate adrenergic receptors and drugs that act indirectly by provoking the release of adrenergic transmitters.
