Greater inotropic and cyclic AMP responses evoked by noradrenaline through Arg389 beta 1-adrenoceptors versus Gly389 beta 1-adrenoceptors in isolated human atrial myocardium.


1. We studied the biochemical and contractile responses of isolated human myocardial tissue expressing native receptor variants of the 389G>R beta(1)-adrenoceptor polymorphism. 2. Right atrial appendage was obtained from homozygous RR patients (n=37) and homozygous GG patients (n=17) undergoing elective cardiac surgery. The positive inotropic effect of… (More)
