I know that it has alpha1, alpha2 and beta1 effects. It has beta2 receptor where epinephrine can effect. However, to say that it is beta adrenomimetic, I am not sure. That is ligand binding beta2 receptor causes a stimulatory effect.

Is norepinephrine beta2 adrenomimetic?


The answer can be found in PubChem, which is linked in the comment by anongoodnurse.

I would not say that

Norepinephrine is beta2 adrenomimetic

because norepinephrine has many roles such as neurotransmitter. I would just say that

Norepinephrine is alpha, beta adrenoagonist.
