Agonist-mediated regulation of beta2-adrenoceptors in mononuclear leukocytes has been examined at the protein but not at the mRNA level. In the present study, incubation of mononuclear leukocytes with the beta-agonist (-)-isoproterenol (10(-6) M) for up to 42 hr led to a maximum decrease in both beta2-adrenoceptor mRNA concentration and total receptor(More)
Atrial fibrillation (AFib) is a frequent complication of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Its cause, however, is unknown. As the adrenergic system is involved in some types of AFib, we hypothesized that a change in guanine nucleotide-binding protein (G protein) expression plays a role in the development of post-CABG AFib. In 28 patients undergoing(More)
