An foreign Symposium "Catecholamines and the center" used to be held in Munich in may perhaps 1981, which was once geared up in cooperation with the Council on Cardiac Metabolism of the foreign Society and Federation of Cardiology and with the Microcirculation operating crew of the ecu Society of Cardiology. It was once the purpose of the organizers to guage during this Symposium the new advances made within the box of sympathetic keep watch over of middle functionality. specific cognizance used to be given to neural sympathetic pathways, to mechanisms and outcomes of adrenoceptor stimulation and blockade in addition to to clinically proper implications more often than not concerning the value of catecholamines and of adrenoceptors in a number of middle illnesses. The wide scope was once coated in 34 papers provided via physiologists, pharmacologists and cardiologists in the course of a day assembly which used to be attended by means of a world viewers. This ebook contains all papers in addition to the discussions following each one presentation. to complete quick e-book the manuscripts are released as submitted through the authors. The discussions have been edited applying the written questions and solutions of the discussants. The Symposium used to be generously subsidized via Astra chemical substances GmbH, Wedell Holstein, Germany, which hence made attainable a truly fruitful alternate of data, rules and ideas among experts in a number of disciplines. The organizers gratefully recognize this help once more and want to thank Dr. T. Kreuzer, the consultant of Astra chemical compounds, for his own engagement.

Propranolol was an equipotential inhibitor of the responses to the two agonists, while butoxamine shifted the adrenaline concentration-effect curves more than the noradrenaline curves. The pA 2-values obtained from Schild analysis [2] of these experiments are shown in Table 1. Qualitatively, the same results were obtained in isolated human right atrial tissue [31]. The differential blockade pattern obtained with the two selective p-antagonists is not consonant with a competitive interaction at one type of receptor.

Conversely, a-adrenergic agonists such as clonidine, phenylephrine, oxymetazoline, naphazoline and extracellular noradrenaline itself inhibited the nerve stimulationevoked release of intra neuronal noradrenaline [36,45,46,47,61]. It was concluded that the terminal sympathetic axons possess a-adrenoceptors, the activation of which by either exogenous agonists or endogenous noradrenaline results, through 30 an unknown series of events, in depression of transmitter release [28, 45]. The number of 3H-dihydroergocryptine binding sites in membranes of rat heart ventricle is reduced after the sympathetic nerves have been destroyed by pretreatment with 6-hydroxydopamine; this observation supports the view that the releaseinhibiting a-receptors as defined functionally are located on the axons themselves [56].
