Cats were anaesthetized with pentobarbital sodium. A push-pull cannula was inserted into the posterior hypothalamus which was superfused through the cannula and electrically stimulated with its tip. Electrical stimulation elicited a frequency-dependent pressor response and tachycardia. Superfusion with orciprenaline, isoprenaline (beta 1- and beta 2-stimulants) or tazolol (beta 1-stimulant) led to a concentration-dependent enhancement in the pressor response. Superfusion with terbutaline caused a slight and late increase in the pressor response, while salbutamol (beta 2-stimulants) was ineffective. The tachycardia elicited by the hypothalamic stimulation was slightly increased by the hypothalamic stimulation was slightly increased by orciprenaline, tazolol and terbutaline. Superfusion with atenolol (beta 1-adrenoreceptor blocking drug) or butoxamine (beta 2-adrenoreceptor blocking drug) inhibited the pressor response and the tachycardia caused by hypothalamic stimulation. Superfusion with butoxamine prior to isoprenaline reduced the enhancing effect of isoprenaline on the pressor response, while superfusion with atenolol abolished or even reversed it. It is concluded that beta 1 and beta 2-adrenoreceptors are present in the pos...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.
