Strictly speaking, however, direct evidence for 7-TM segments has been obtained for limited number of members, including muscarinic receptors, rhodopsin and [beta]2 adrenergic receptors and several others.
Likewise, the inhibition of norepinephrine reuptake (INR) in the axonic endings of the inhibitory noradrenergic descending pathways, increases the extracellular concentration of norepinephrine (NE) in the spinal cord, which can also produce anti-nociception by the activation of the [alpha]2 adrenergic receptors which can be of particular interest in chronic neuropathic pain.
