A previous study suggested the existence of two distinct postsynaptic alpha adrenergic receptors in canine intralobar pulmonary arteries (IPA) and veins. The present study, performed using rings of canine IPA and dorsal metatarsal vein (DMV), was designed to characterize the factors affecting the postsynaptic alpha 1 and alpha 2 receptors of these blood vessels. The responses of IPA and DMV to norepinephrine (NE), transmural nerve stimulation, phenylephrine (PE), guanabenz, and clonidine were… CONTINUE READING
