Catecholamine receptors of multiple classes have been shown to influence pineal melatonin synthesis in a species-specific manner. In these experiments, the effects of catecholamine receptor agonists on circadian melatonin rhythms of zebrafish (Danio rerio) pineal in vitro were examined. Cyclic application of adrenergic receptor agonists (norepinephrine, phenylephrine, clonidine, and isoproterenol) had no effect on zebrafish pineal melatonin release, nor on the circadian oscillator that… CONTINUE READING
