In vitro experiments using isolated atria with and without superfusion can be used to quantify the dopamine-2 (DA-2) receptor stimulating activity of compounds. This receptor mechanism decreases the amount of norepinephrine released from sympathetic nerve terminals by neuronal impulses. DA-2 receptor agonists (stimulants) are very active and induce several… (More)
