The effects of the interaction of dopamine (DA) and the DA2 receptors on glomerular filtration rate (GFR) has been studied by means of micropuncture technique in adult greater than or equal to 60-day-old and young 24-day-old rats. Most of the studies were performed in rats with intact adrenergic nervous systems to allow for evaluation of the presynaptic DA2 receptors. In adult and young rats, DA and LY-171555 (LY), a selective DA2 receptor agonist, induced prompt and significant increases in… CONTINUE READING
