1. Indoramin is a competitive alpha-adrenoceptor blocking agent on the guinea-pig isolated vas deferens and aortic strip; the pA(2) value on the aorta is 7.4.2. Indoramin is devoid of beta-adrenoceptor blocking activity on the guinea-pig isolated trachea (10(-4)M) and the Langendorff preparation of the rabbit heart (10(-6)M). It also has no adrenergic neurone blocking action on the Finkleman preparation of the rabbit small intestine (10(-5)M).3. On the Langendorff preparation of the rabbit isolated heart, indoramin (above 10(-6)M) has cardio-inhibitory properties similar to those of propranolol.4. On the guinea-pig isolated ileum (10(-5)M) and trachea (10(-6)M), indoramin is devoid of anticholinergic activity, but has a potent antihistamine action which satisfies the criteria for competitive antagonism; the pA(2) value for this antagonism on the ileum is 8.2.5. Indoramin antagonizes 5-hydroxytryptamine on the rat isolated fundus and ileum; the pA(2) value for the antagonism on the ileum is 6.0.
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.
