The positive chronotropic effect induced by BRL 37344 and CGP 12177, two beta-3 adrenergic agonists, does not involve cardiac beta adrenoceptors but baroreflex mechanisms.


The presence of a beta-3 adrenoceptor (in addition to the classical beta-1 and beta-2 adrenoceptors) and its involvement in the control of heart rate was investigated in the dog. Experiments were carried out in conscious normal and sinoaortic denervated dogs (i.e. animals deprived of baroreceptor pathways). In normal dogs, infusion of isoproterenol, BRL… (More)
