Our knowledge of autoimmunity and autoimmune diseases has been advanced in the past decades. Receptors present on the immune cells may potentially regulate the immune system, among them, beta-adrenergic receptors are of special interest. As neurotransmitter receptors which are also present on lymphocytes, beta-adrenergic receptors play an important role as the linkage of two important systems, neuroendocrine and immune systems. Here I summarize several lines of evidence of the importance of the beta-adrenergic receptors in immune regulation.
