The role of imidazoline receptors in blood pressure regulation

Pharmacology & Therapeutics
C A Hamilton


Using the ligands [3H] clonidine and [3H] idazoxan, nonadrenergic imidazoline preferring binding sites have been identified in a range of tissues from several species including man. These sites may represent a new family of receptors. An endogenous ligand and potential clonidine displacing substance has been identified. There is strong evidence for an involvement of the nonadrenergic imidazoline [3H] clonidine labelled sites in the nucleus reticularis lateralis in blood pressure regulation, and some evidence for a role in sodium regulation in the kidney for the [3H] idazoxan labelled sites. Some drugs which were previously thought to act via alpha 2-adrenoceptors, may mediate their effects in part via these imidazoline sites.

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.
