Some actions of sympathomimetic amines and their antagonists on mouse superfused ileum.

Superfused segments of mouse ileum exhibited spontaneous movement which Mwere inhibited by sympathomimetic amines. Isoprenaline and adrenaline were approximately equipotent and about 15 times more potent than either noradrenaline or phenylephrine. Supersensitivity developed to all these agents when mice had been 'sympathectomized' with NGF-antiserum or 6… CONTINUE READING
