Alpha 2-adrenoceptor density in forebrain areas of Zucker rats: no effect of genetic obesity or antiglucocorticoid treatment.

The density of alpha 2-adrenoceptors was determined in different forebrain regions of lean and obese Zucker rats by para-[125I]iodoclonidine ([125I]PIC) receptor autoradiography. No significant differences were observed between the Zucker phenotypes in the density of alpha 2-adrenoceptors in any brain areas examined. Four days treatment with the… (More)
