SummaryMEN 935 [1-(3-((3-(1-naphthoxy)-2-hydroxypropyl)amino)-3,3-dimethylpropyl)-2-benzimidazolinone-hydrochloride monohydrate, adimolol] is a long acting antihypertensive agent with beta- and alpha-adrenolytic properties. Preliminary experiments in pithed rats had led to the suggestion that the alpha-adrenolytic activity was of the alpha2-subtype. The alpha-adrenolytic properties of MEN 935 were now tested in isolated vascular preparations of rat aorta, rabbit vena ischiadica and rabbit vena…

Serotonin uptake blockers influence serotonin autoreceptors by increasing the biophase concentration of serotonin and not through a “molecular link”

The results indicate that serotonin uptake blockers attenuate the effect of exogenous autoreceptor agonists by an increase in the biophase concentration of released serotonin and, hence, in endogenous autoinhibitory tone.

Postjunctional alpha-adrenoceptors and influence of angiotensin II in different isolated blood vessels.

Prazosin and yohimbine revealed a competitive antagonism against both agonists in all three vessels, pointing to the existence of functional alpha 1- and alpha 2-adrenoceptors.

Characterization of postsynaptic alpha-adrenoceptors in rat aortic strips and portal veins.

Significant differences in mean pA2 values for prazosin, BE-2254 and phentolamine were approximately one order of magnitude lower in portal veins than in aortic strips, suggesting that the receptors in the two tissues may not be identical.

B-HT 920 acts as an α1-adrenoceptor agonist in the rabbit aorta under certain in vitro conditions

It is concluded that spasmogens modulate the responsiveness of α-receptors to certain agonists, possibly by causing a depolarization of the cell membrane and, thereby, sensitization of a mechanism involved in excitation-contraction coupling, conceivably a calcium gating mechanism.

Postjunctional alpha-adrenoceptors. Alpha 1 and alpha 2 subtypes in rat vasculature in vitro and in vivo.

The postsynaptic alpha-adrenoceptors in rat aorta and in pithed rat were investigated according to their sensitivity to nine alpha-adrenergic agonists and to the selective antagonists yohimbine

Postjunctional alpha-adrenoceptors in the isolated saphenous vein of the rabbit. Characterization and influence of angiotensin.

It is concluded that the postjunctional alpha 2-receptors of the saphenous vein require the blood borne substance angiotensin for their expression and that in the presence of ang Elliotensin the characteristics of the receptors as revealed by B-HT 920 are converted to typicalalpha 2-adrenoceptors.

Assessment of alpha-adrenergic receptor subtypes in isolated rat aortic segments

Prazosin is 245–1259-fold more potent than rauwolscine as an antagonist of contractions induced by various α1- and α2-agonists in the rat aorta, indicating that constriction of the smooth muscle of the ratAorta to α-adrenergic agonists is mediated through α1, but not α2,adrenoceptors.

Effect of converting enzyme inhibition and angiotensin receptor blockade on the vasoconstriction mediated by α1 and α2 stimulation in pithed normotensive rats

It is concluded that in pithed normotensive rats the pressor response to α2-adrenoceptor stimulation is significantly potentiated by endogenous angiotensin II, even at low circulating levels of the octapeptide.

Comparison of activity of alpha-adrenoceptor agonists and antagonists in dog and rabbit saphenous vein

The results suggest that the dog saphenous vein has a mixed population of alpha adrenoceptors, while the alpha adrenOceptors on the rabbit vein are homogeneous, with characteristics of the alpha2 subtype.

Postjunctional α-adrenoceptors in the isolated saphenous vein of the rabbit

It is concluded that the postjunctional α2-receptors of the saphenous vein require the blood borne substance angiotensin for their expression.
