: 1. Centrally acting imidazoline antihypertensive agents clonidine and moxonidine also act peripherally to contract blood vessels. While these agents act at both I(1)-imidazoline and alpha 2 adrenergic receptors centrally, the receptor types by which they mediate contraction require further definition. We therefore characterized the receptor subtype by(More)
The I(1)-imidazoline receptor is a novel target for drug development for hypertension and insulin resistance, major disorders associated with type 2 diabetes. In the present study, we examined the effects of a novel imidazoline agonist S43126, on phosphorylation of protein kinase B (PKB/Akt) and extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK1/2) in PC12 cells.(More)
