Isolated preparations of rat prostate responded to electrical field stimulation (2 strains every 60 s, 0.5 ms, 10 Hz, 80 V) with contractions. The adrenoceptor agonists adrenaline, isoprenaline and noradrenaline (0.1 nM(-10) x microM) elicited concentration-dependent inhibition of electrical field stimulation-induced contractions of the rat prostate. Phenylephrine had no effect on the amplitude of electrical field stimulation-induced contractions. The rank order of potency was isoprenaline> or… Expand
