Quantitative autoradiography was used to determine the location and density of β1- and β2-adrenoceptors in the right atrium (RA), left ventricular free wall (LVFW), right ventricular free wall (RVFW), interventricular septum (IVS), right atrium from an area near the atrioventricular node (RAAV) and cardiac nerves (N) taken from a patient with end-stage cardiac failure. The densities of β-adrenoceptors detected by the non-selective β-adrenoceptor antagonist radioligand (−)-[125I] cyanopindolol… Expand
