Epinephrine acts mostly on Beta receptors. Beta receptors are G coupled.

baja_blast  Alpha receptors are also G-coupled and are another potential site of action for Epinephrine (at high doses according to SketchyPharm Sympathomimetics) +

how is adrenal medulla has ACH nicotinic receptor which are ligand-gated Na/k channeles ? muscarinic ACH receptors are G-protein-coupled receptors.

gdupgrant  epinephrine acts on alpha or beta adrenergic receptors which are all G protien receptors. muscarinic receptors are also G coupled but Acetyl choline wasnt an answer choice. In the adrenal medulla the chromaffin cells are kinda like modified post ganglionic neurons and have nicotinic receptors. +
