Effects of beta-adrenoceptor agonists on airway smooth muscle and on slow-contracting skeletal muscle: in vitro and in vivo results compared

Acta Pharmacologica Et Toxicologica
O A OlssonB Waldeck


Ten beta-adrenoceptor agonists were examined with respect to a) relaxation of pilocarpine-contracted trachea and depression of contractions of the soleus muscle of the guinea-pig in vitro and b) counteraction of histamine-induced bronchospasm and depression of contractions of the soleus muscle of the cat in vivo. There was a close correlation between the results obtained in vitro and results obtained on the corresponding tissues in vivo in spite of the different species used. A close correlation was also observed between effects on airway smooth muscle and on the soleus muscle contractions in vitro as well as in vivo for all compounds examined.

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.
