  • Drugs selective for either the beta1- or beta2-adrenoceptor have been investigated for their effects on the head-twitch behaviour induced by l-5-hydroxytryptophan (l-5-HTP) in mice. All four agonists, dobutamine and prenalterol (beta1-), and salbutamol and procaterol (beta2-), potentiated the effect of l-5-HTP although they were ineffective in inducing the head-twitch when administered alone. The corresponding antagonists, practolol and metoprolol (beta1-) and butoxamine and ICI 118,551 (beta2… CONTINUE READING
