Three distinct genes encode α1-adrenoceptors. Although homodimers of each subtype have been reported, certain but not all combinations of heterodimers of the α1-adrenoceptors appear to form. Key studies in this field are reviewed and the approaches that have been applied to monitoring the selectivity and the basis of α1-adrenoceptor dimerization are discussed.
