In this study, we investigated whether the responses of right atria from sinoaortic denervated rats to CGP12177 (4(3-t-butylamino-2-hydroxypropoxy benzidimidazole-2 one, hydrochloride)), isoprenaline and norepinephrine desensitized in parallel and whether CGP12177 interacted with distinct conformations of beta-adrenoceptors. Right atria from rats 48 h after sinoaortic denervation were subsensitive to isoprenaline, norepinephrine and CGP12177. One week after sinoaortic denervation, the sensitivity to CGP12177 had recovered whereas the responses to isoprenaline and norepinephrine were still subsensitive, suggesting that the binding sites for these molecules showed independent behavior. In atria from 48 h sinoaortic-denervated rats, propranolol or 3 microM CGP20712A (2-hydroxy-5(2-((2-hydroxy-3-(4-((methyl-4-trifluormethyl)1H imidazole-2-yl)-phenoxypropyl) amino) ethoxy)-benzamide monomethane sulphonate)) blocked the responses to 10 nM-1 microM CGP12177 and steepened the curves. The concentration-response curves to CGP12177 in the presence of ICI118,551 (erythro-DL-1(-methylindan-4-yloxy)-3-isopropylamino-butan-2-ol) were biphasic, suggesting that CGP12177 interacted with at least two conformations of beta-adrenoceptors that showe...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.
