Xylazine (1.1 mg/kg of body weight, IV), an alpha 2-adrenoreceptor agonist, suppressed the increase in plasma insulin concentration induced by glucose (0.6 g/kg, IV) in dogs. Yohimbine (0.11 mg/kg, IV), an alpha 2-adrenoreceptor antagonist, given 5 minutes after xylazine, reversed effects of xylazine, whereas yohimbine alone increased plasma insulin and decreased plasma glucose concentrations. Seemingly, alpha 2-adrenoreceptors exert a negative control of insulin release.
