The tritiated adrenergic antagonists prazosin ([3H]PRZ) and idazoxan ([3H]IDA, or RX-781094) bind specifically and with high affinity to alpha 1- and alpha 2-adrenoceptors respectively, and were used to measure adrenoceptors in membrane preparations obtained from the cerebral cortex of Jaculus orientalis. Membrane preparations were also obtained from a group of cold exposed animals, to determine whether these adrenoceptors could be modified by a thermic stress. The density of receptors (Bmax… CONTINUE READING
