1. In conscious fed rabbits the intravenous infusion of amidephrine (10 micrograms kg-1 min-1), an alpha 1-adrenoceptor agonist, caused a significant increase in plasma potassium levels that was blunted by prazosin (50 micrograms kg-1, s.c.). Idazoxan failed to modify this response. 2. Clonidine (2 micrograms kg-1 min-1, i.v.), an alpha 2-adrenoceptor… CONTINUE READING
