Pharmacological identification of the α₂-adrenoceptor subtypes mediating the vasopressor responses to B-HT 933 in pithed rats.


It has been shown that α(2)-adrenoceptors mediate vasopressor responses in pithed rats. However, the corresponding α(2)-adrenoceptor subtypes have not been pharmacologically identified. Thus, this study set out to identify the specific subtypes (α(2A), α(2B) and α(2C)) mediating the vasopressor responses to the α(2)-adrenoceptor agonist, B-HT 933, by using… (More)
