The (+)-isomer of amosulalol, a combined alpha- and beta-adrenoceptor antagonist, was one log unit order more potent and less potent than the (-)-isomer in blocking alpha 1- and beta 1-adrenoceptors, respectively, in anaesthetized rats. Nine newly synthesized desoxy compounds derived from amosulalol and its analogues were found to possess potent alpha 1-adrenoceptor blocking activity and to be practically devoid of beta 1-adrenoceptor blocking activity. Among the desoxy derivatives, YM-12617 was more potent than prazosin in blocking alpha 1-adrenoceptors in anaesthetized rats and in reducing blood pressure, total peripheral resistance and left ventricular work in anaesthetized dogs.
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.
