N-Isopropyl-p-iodoamphetamine (IMP) receptors in normal human lung tissue were characterized using a radioligand binding assay with iodine-125 IMP as the ligand. Saturation binding studies revealed the presence of two binding sites with dissociation constant (K d) values of 53 ± 2 and 4687 ± 124 nM and maximum binding capacity (Bmax) values of 7 ± 1 and 133(More)
