The cyclic AMP response to catecholamines in the rat cerebral cortex is mediated by both beta- and alpha-adrenoceptors. The beta-receptors cause a direct activation of adenylate cyclase whereas the alpha alpha-receptors play a modulatory role and act by potentiating the response to beta stimulation. The present study investigated whether the functions of… CONTINUE READING
