Epinephrine (5.5 mM; quantity: 0.01-87 pmole) and norepinephrine (5.9 mM; quantity: 0.01-88 pmole) were applied to 144 and 26 mesenteric capillaries, respectively, in 39 rats. Neither of these agents had a significant effect on the mean capillary diameter (control diameter before epinephrine application: 9.6 +/- 3.6 microns SD; before norepinephrine application: 11.4 +/- 6.6 microns SD). Unexpectedly, in 36% of the epinephrine applications and 49% of the norepinephrine applications, capillary… CONTINUE READING
