Role of sympathetic neurons in development of beta-adrenergic control of ornithine decarboxylase activity in peripheral tissues: effects of neonatal 6-hydroxydopamine treatment.


Sympathetic neurons are thought to regulate the development of their postsynaptic targets. In the current study, we examined the effects of sympathectomy with 6-hydroxydopamine in neonatal rats on the ontogeny of beta-receptor binding sites and their linkage to both cyclic AMP production and ornithine decarboxylase activity. Cardiac norepinephrine levels… (More)
