ABSTRACT
The effects of isopropylnorepinephrine and epinephrine on glucose metabolism in arterial smooth muscle were investigated in the femoral artery of the dog. Lactic acid and carbon dioxide production from labelled glucose in arterial smooth muscle fell after incubation with isopropylnorepinephrine and was not significantly changed by the addition of epinephrine. It is suggested that isopropylnorepinephrine may induce a shift of metabolic pathways arterial smooth muscle, possibly associated with changes in lipid metabolism.

    In isolated vascular strips from normal human breast skin, the threshold for contractile response was 2 × 10-11 gm/ml for norepinephrine and 6 × 10-11 gm/ml for epinephrine. Isoproterenol gave contractile responses at 1 × 10-6 gm/mI. Blockade with phentolamine and propranolol...

    Exposure to endotoxin in vivo and in vitro, as studied by the use of the isolated, vascular, smooth-muscle technique of Bohr, indicates that the direct epinephrine-constricting effect on rabbit arterial and venous vascular smooth-muscle strips is the same preceding and after endotoxin...

    Background: The cellular localization of the α1D-adrenergic receptor (α1D-AR) is controversial. Studies in heterologous cell systems have shown that this receptor is expressed in intracellular compartments. Other studies show that dimerization with other ARs promotes the cell surface...

    We have earlier shown that aortic vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC) from 12-week-old spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) exhibited enhanced production of superoxide anion (O2-) compared with Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) rats. This production was attenuated to control levels by losartan, an angiotensin...
