[Adenylate cyclase response to beta-adrenergic agonists in heart and brown adipose tissue].


Some sympathomimetic compounds (i.e. BRL37344) increase brown adipose tissue (BAT) thermogenesis with minimal cardiac effects. They act through an "atypical" beta-adrenergic receptor (beta-AR). Since beta-AR responses involve Adenylate Cyclase (AC) activation, we investigate the AC answer to isoproterenol and BRL37344 in rat plasmamembranes of heart (beta 1… (More)
