When given systemically, isoproterenol will induce water intake in various species. The drug also causes hypotension and renin release from the kidney. Angiotensin II and arterial baroreceptors have been hypothesized to be involved in the mediation of beta-adrenoceptor agonist-induced thirst, but their relative importance has been disputed. In the present series of experiments, isoproterenol was infused intravenously at different rates into nephrectomized and ureteric-ligated rats. Thus… CONTINUE READING
