Dopamine-sensitive receptors that evoke rumination and modify reticulo-ruminal activity in sheep.

Abstract

Dopamine (20 micrograms/kg) evoked rumination in sheep when injected as a bolus into the coeliac artery or into the left gastric artery but not when injected into the carotid artery. A mixed alpha-adrenoreceptor antagonist (phentolamine) and an alpha 2-adrenoreceptor antagonist (yohimbine) prevented dopamine from evoking rumination, but a dopaminergic… (More)
