Relaxation of cat trachea by beta-adrenoceptor agonists can be mediated by both beta1- and beta2-adrenoceptors and potentiated by inhibitors of extraneuronal uptake.

Abstract

1--Responses (relaxation) to the beta-adrenoceptor agonists, isoprenaline, fenoterol or noradrenaline, were obtained on cat tracheal preparations contracted with a submaximal concentration of carbachol (0.5 microM). 2--The relative potencies of isoprenaline: fenoterol: noradrenaline were 100:8.1:10.7. From this, it was concluded that responses were mediated… (More)
