We investigated the role of alpha-adrenergic antagonists and clonidine injected into the medial septal area (MSA) on water intake and the decrease in Na+, K+ and urine elicited by ANGII injection into the third ventricle (3rdV). Male Holtzman rats with stainless steel cannulas implanted into the 3rdV and MSA were used. ANGII (12 nmol/ micro l) increased water intake (12.5 +/- 1.7 ml/120 min). Clonidine (20 nmol/ micro l) injected into the MSA reduced the ANGII-induced water intake (2.9 +/- 0.5 ml/120 min). Pretreatment with 80 nmol/ micro l yohimbine or prazosin into the MSA also reduced the ANGII-induced water intake (3.0 +/- 0.4 and 3.1 +/- 0.2 ml/120 min, respectively). Yohimbine + prazosin + clonidine injected into the MSA abolished the ANGII-induced water intake (0.2 +/- 0.1 and 0.2 +/- 0.1 ml/120 min, respectively). ANGII reduced Na+ (23 +/- 7 micro Eq/120 min), K+ (27 +/- 3 micro Eq/120 min) and urine volume (4.3 +/- 0.9 ml/120 min). Clonidine increased the parameters above. Clonidine injected into the MSA abolished the inhibitory effect of ANGII on urinary sodium. Yohimbine injected into the MSA also abolished the inhibitory effects of ANGII. Yohimbine + clonidine attenuated the inhibitory effects of ANGII. Prazosin inj...Continue Reading

Adrenergic Receptors: Trafficking

Adrenergic receptor trafficking is an active physiological process where adrenergic receptors are relocated from one region of the cell to another or from one type of cell to another. Discover the latest research on adrenergic receptor trafficking here.
