Synthesis and evaluation of the pharmacological activity of rigid analogues of sympathomimetic catecholamines derived from bicyclo[2.2.1]heptane

endo-3-Amino-exo-2-(3,4-dihydroxyphenyl)-2-hydroxybicyclo[2.2.1]he ptane (4a) and its N-isopropyl derivative (4b) were synthesized and assayed for their adrenergic activity on various isolated preparations. Compounds 4a and 4b, tested up to a dose of 10(-4) M, did not reveal any activity, either stimulant or blocking, on the alpha- and beta-adrenoceptors. Possible rationalizations of the results obtained, however, are suggested.

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.
