  • The active principle of suprenal extract that produces its pressor effects was isolated by the joint research of John Abel in 1899 and Jokichi Takamine in 1901. Within three years Elliott, working in Langley's laboratory, suggested that this active principle, referred to by British physiologists as “adrenaline” and named “Adrenalin” by Takamine, was released from sympathetic nerve terminals to act on smooth muscle cells. However, it was not until 1946 that von Euler showed that demythelated… CONTINUE READING
