The possible existence of a heterogeneous population of alpha 2-adrenoceptors (alpha 2A and alpha 2B, demonstrated by binding studies) in adrenergic nerve endings of cat and bovine cerebral arteries modulating noradrenaline release was investigated. Electrical field stimulation elicited an increase of tritium secretion from these vessels preincubated with… CONTINUE READING
