Effect of paf-acether on isoprenaline-induced relaxation in isolated tracheal segments of rats and guinea pigs

European Journal of Pharmacology
N ChandR D Sofia


Platelet activating factor (paf-acether) was found to contract rat and guinea pig tracheal segments. It does not cause down regulation of beta-adrenoceptor in guinea pig trachea. In addition, paf-contracted rat tracheal segments lose their ability to relax in response to isoprenaline.

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.
