Hepatocyte beta-adrenoceptors were characterized in trout with chronically raised plasma cortisol levels (132.1 +/- 14.8 ng/ml, n = 8, 11-12 days) and compared with shams (1.8 +/- 0.9 ng/ml, n = 8) using radioreceptor assay techniques. Hepatocytes prepared from sham trout possessed 1,696 +/- 179 beta-adrenoceptors/cell. These receptors were characterized as beta 2-adrenoceptors based on the potency order of specific inhibition of CGP binding. The number of putative surface beta 2-adrenoceptors… CONTINUE READING
