Extra-vesicular binding of noradrenaline and guanethidine in the adrenergic neurones of the rat heart: a proposed site of action of adrenergic neurone blocking agents. (1/10407)

1 The binding and efflux characteristics of [14C]-guanethidine and [3H]-noradrenaline were studied in heart slices from rats which were pretreated with reserpine and nialamide. 2 Binding of both compounds occurred at extra-vesicular sites within the adrenergic neurone. After a brief period of rapid washout, the efflux of [14C]-guanethidine and [3H]-noradrenaline proceeded at a steady rate. The efflux of both compounds appeared to occur from a single intraneuronal compartment. 3 (+)-Amphetamine accelerated the efflux of [14C]-noradrenaline; this effect was inhibited by desipramine. 4 Unlabelled guanethidine and amantadine also increased the efflux of labelled compounds. Cocaine in high concentrations increased slightly the efflux of [14C]-guanethidine but not that of [3H]-noradrenaline. 5 Heart slices labelled with [3H]-noradrenaline became refractory to successive exposures to releasing agents although an appreciable amount of labelled compound was still present in in these slices. 6 It is suggested that [14C]-guanethidine and [3H]-noradrenaline are bound at a common extravesicular site within the adrenergic neurone. Binding of guanethidine to the extra-vesicular site may be relevant to its pharmacological action, i.e., the blockade of adrenergic transmission.  (+info)

Long-term effects of N-2-chlorethyl-N-ethyl-2-bromobenzylamine hydrochloride on noradrenergic neurones in the rat brain and heart. (2/10407)

1 N-2-Chlorethyl-N-ethyl-2-bromobenzylamine hydrochloride (DSP 4) 50 mg/kg intraperitoneally, produced a long-term decrease in the capacity of brain homogenates to accumulate noradrenaline with significant effect 8 months after the injection. It had no effect on the noradrenaline uptake in homogenates from the striatum (dopamine neurones) and on the uptake of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) in various brain regions. 2 In vitro DSP 4 inhibited the noradrenaline uptake in a cortical homogenate with an IC50 value of 2 muM but was more than ten times less active on the dopamine uptake in a striatal homogenate and the 5-HT uptake in a cortical homogenate. 3 DSP 4 (50 mg/kg i.p.) inhibited the uptake of noradrenaline in the rat heart atrium in vitro but this action was terminated within 2 weeks. 4 DSP 4 (50 mg/kg i.p.) cuased a decrease in the dopamine-beta-hydroxylase (DBH) activity in the rat brain and heart. The onset of this effect was slow; in heart a lag period of 2-4 days was noted. In brain the DBH-activity in cerebral cortex was much more decreased than that in hypothalamus which was only slightly affected. A significant effect was still found 8 months after the injection. The noradrenaline concentration in the brain was greatly decreased for at least two weeks, whereas noradrenaline in heart was only temporarily reduced. 5 The long-term effects of DSP 4 on the noradrenaline accumulation, the DBH activity and noradrenaline concentration in the rat brain were antagonized by desipramine (10 mg/kg i.p.). 6 It is suggested that DSP 4 primarily attacks the membranal noradrenaline uptake sites forming a covalent bond and that the nerve terminals, as a result of this binding, degenerate.  (+info)

Studies on the mechanism of action of amantadine. (3/10407)

1 The effect of amantadine hydrochloride on various aspects of catecholamine metabolism in the rat brain has been investigated. 2 Amantadine failed to have any significant effect on brain concentrations of dopamine or noradrenaline even when administered daily for 9 days. 3 Amantadine had no effect on the rate of decline of noradrenaline and dopamine concentrations after alpha-methyl-p-tyrosine. 4 In vitro amantadine inhibited dopamine uptake into synaptosomes only at high concentrations, and caused little release of dopamine from synaptosomes. 5 There is no evidence from these results to suggest that the anti-Parkinsonian effect of amantadine is related to an action on dopaminergic mechanisms.  (+info)

Further evidence that prostaglandins inhibit the release of noradrenaline from adrenergic nerve terminals by restriction of availability of calcium. (4/10407)

1 Guinea-pig vasa deferentia were continuously superfused after labelling the transmitter stores with [3H](-)-noradrenaline. Release of [3H]-(-)-noradrenaline was induced by transmural nerve stimulation. 2 Prostglandin E2 (14 nM) drastically reduced the release of [3H]-(-)-noradrenaline, while tetraethylammonium (2 mM), rubidium (6 mM), phenoxybenzamine (3 muM) each in the presence or absence of Uptake 1 or 2 blockade, and prolonged pulse duration (from 0.5 to 2.0 ms) all significantly increased the release of [3H]-(-)-noradrenaline per nerve impulse. 3 The inhibitory effect of prostaglandin E2 on evoked release of [3H]-(-)-noradrenaline was significantly reduced by tetraethylammonium, rubidium and prolonged pulse duration, whilst it was actually enhanced by phenoxybenzamine. This indicates that increased release of noradrenaline per nerve impulse does not per se counteract the inhibitory effect of prostaglandin E2. 4 It is concluded that tetraethylammonium, rubidium and prolonged pulse duration counteracted the inhibitory effect of prostaglandin E2 on T3H]-(-)-noradrenaline release by promoting calcium influx during the nerve action potential. The results are consistent with, and add more weight to the view that prostaglandins inhibit the release of noradrenaline by restriction of calcium availability.  (+info)

Modulation of long-term synaptic depression in visual cortex by acetylcholine and norepinephrine. (5/10407)

In a slice preparation of rat visual cortex, we discovered that paired-pulse stimulation (PPS) elicits a form of homosynaptic long-term depression (LTD) in the superficial layers when carbachol (CCh) or norepinephrine (NE) is applied concurrently. PPS by itself, or CCh and NE in the absence of synaptic stimulation, produced no lasting change. The LTD induced by PPS in the presence of NE or CCh is of comparable magnitude with that obtained with prolonged low-frequency stimulation (LFS) but requires far fewer stimulation pulses (40 vs 900). The cholinergic facilitation of LTD was blocked by atropine and pirenzepine, suggesting involvement of M1 receptors. The noradrenergic facilitation of LTD was blocked by urapidil and was mimicked by methoxamine, suggesting involvement of alpha1 receptors. beta receptor agonists and antagonists were without effect. Induction of LTD by PPS was inhibited by NMDA receptor blockers (completely in the case of NE; partially in the case of CCh), suggesting that one action of the modulators is to control the gain of NMDA receptor-dependent homosynaptic LTD in visual cortex. We propose that this is a mechanism by which cholinergic and noradrenergic inputs to the neocortex modulate naturally occurring receptive field plasticity.  (+info)

Allyl-containing sulfides in garlic increase uncoupling protein content in brown adipose tissue, and noradrenaline and adrenaline secretion in rats. (6/10407)

The effects of garlic supplementation on triglyceride metabolism were investigated by measurements of the degree of thermogenesis in interscapular brown adipose tissue (IBAT), and noradrenaline and adrenaline secretion in rats fed two types of dietary fat. In Experiment 1, rats were given isoenergetic high-fat diets containing either shortening or lard with or without garlic powder supplementation (8 g/kg of diet). After 28 d feeding, body weight, plasma triglyceride levels and the weights of perirenal adipose tissue and epididymal fat pad were significantly lower in rats fed diets supplemented with garlic powder than in those fed diets without garlic powder. The content of mitochondrial protein and uncoupling protein (UCP) in IBAT, and urinary noradrenaline and adrenaline excretion were significantly greater in rats fed a lard diet with garlic powder than in those fed the same diet without garlic. Other than adrenaline secretion, differences due to garlic were significant in rats fed shortening, also. In Experiment 2, the effects of various allyl-containing sulfides present in garlic on noradrenaline and adrenaline secretion were evaluated. Administration of diallyldisulfide, diallyltrisulfide and alliin, organosulfur compounds present in garlic, significantly increased plasma noradrenaline and adrenaline concentrations, whereas the administration of disulfides without allyl residues, diallylmonosulfide and S-allyl-L-cysteine did not increase adrenaline secretion. These results suggest that in rats, allyl-containing sulfides in garlic enhance thermogenesis by increasing UCP content in IBAT, and noradrenaline and adrenaline secretion.  (+info)

Sympathetic nerve alterations assessed with 123I-MIBG in the failing human heart. (7/10407)

Norepinephrine (NE) reuptake function is impaired in heart failure and this may participate in myocyte hyperstimulation by the neurotransmitter. This alteration can be assessed by 123I-metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) scintigraphy. METHODS: To determine whether the impairment of neuronal NE reuptake was reversible after metoprolol therapy, we studied 18 patients (43+/-7 y) with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy who were stabilized at least for 3 mo with captopril and diuretics. Patients underwent, before and after 6 mo of therapy with metoprolol, measurements of radionuclide left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), maximal oxygen consumption and plasma NE concentration. The cardiac adrenergic innervation function was scintigraphically assessed with MIBG uptake and release measurements on the planar images obtained 20 min and 4 h after tracer injection. To evaluate whether metoprolol had a direct interaction with cardiac MIBG uptake and release, six normal subjects were studied before and after a 1-mo metoprolol intake. RESULTS: In controls, neither cardiac MIBG uptake and release nor circulating NE concentration changed after the 1-mo metoprolol intake. Conversely, after a 6-mo therapy with metoprolol, patients showed increased cardiac MIBG uptake (129%+/-10% versus 138%+/-17%; P = 0.009), unchanged cardiac MIBG release and decreased plasma NE concentration (0.930+/-412 versus 0.721+/-0.370 ng/mL; P = 0.02). In parallel, patients showed improved New York Heart Association class (2.44+/-0.51 versus 2.05+/-0.23; P = 0.004) and increased LVEF (20%+/-8% versus 27%+/-8%; P = 0.0005), whereas maximal oxygen uptake remained unchanged. CONCLUSION: Thus, a parallel improvement of myocardial NE reuptake and of hemodynamics was observed after a 6-mo metoprolol therapy, suggesting that such agents may be beneficial in heart failure by directly protecting the myocardium against excessive NE stimulation.  (+info)

Influence of vesicular storage and monoamine oxidase activity on [11C]phenylephrine kinetics: studies in isolated rat heart. (8/10407)

[11C]Phenylephrine (PHEN) is a radiolabeled analogue of norepinephrine that is transported into cardiac sympathetic nerve varicosities by the neuronal norepinephrine transporter and taken up into storage vesicles localized within the nerve varicosities by the vesicular monoamine transporter. PHEN is structurally related to two previously developed sympathetic nerve markers: [11C]-meta-hydroxyephedrine and [11C]epinephrine. To better characterize the neuronal handling of PHEN, particularly its sensitivity to neuronal monoamine oxidase (MAO) activity, kinetic studies in an isolated working rat heart system were performed. METHODS: Radiotracer was administered to the isolated working heart as a 10-min constant infusion followed by a 110-min washout period. Two distinctly different approaches were used to assess the sensitivity of the kinetics of PHEN to MAO activity. In the first approach, oxidation of PHEN by MAO was inhibited at the enzymatic level with the MAO inhibitor pargyline. In the second approach, the two hydrogen atoms on the a-carbon of the side chain of PHEN were replaced with deuterium atoms ([11C](-)-alpha-alpha-dideutero-phenylephrine [D2-PHEN]) to inhibit MAO activity at the tracer level. The importance of vesicular uptake on the kinetics of PHEN and D2-PHEN was assessed by inhibiting vesicular monoamine transporter-mediated storage into vesicles with reserpine. RESULTS: Under control conditions, PHEN initially accumulated into the heart at a rate of 0.72+/-0.15 mL/min/g wet. Inhibition of MAO activity with either pargyline or di-deuterium substitution did not significantly alter this rate. However, MAO inhibition did significantly slow the clearance of radioactivity from the heart during the washout phase of the study. Blocking vesicular uptake with reserpine reduced the initial uptake rates of PHEN and D2-PHEN, as well as greatly accelerated the clearance of radioactivity from the heart during washout. CONCLUSION: These studies indicate that PHEN kinetics are sensitive to neuronal MAO activity. Under normal conditions, efficient vesicular storage of PHEN serves to protect the tracer from rapid metabolism by neuronal MAO. However, it is likely that leakage of PHEN from the storage vesicles and subsequent metabolism by MAO lead to an appreciable clearance of radioactivity from the heart.  (+info)

Our findings showed a clear association between the orthostatic plasma norepinephrine level and symptom severity in patients with POTS. The orthostatic plasma norepinephrine level of POTS patients also associated with the increment of heat rate from supine position to standing. Especially, we found that the effectiveness of metoprolol in POTS children was related to the level of orthostatic plasma norepinephrine. Our results indicate that plasma level of norepinephrine , 3.59 pg/ml is an indicator of the effectiveness of metoprolol in children and adolescents with POTS.. Children with POTS often have symptoms of OI, such as syncope, dizziness, chest distress, chest pain, headache, palpitation, fatigue, and so on [1]-[4]. Additionally, the recurrent symptoms usually create physical and psychological stresses in childrens daily lives, both at home and school [5],[23],[24]. Therefore, an effective treatment, to improve symptoms, is necessary for the children with POTS.. No definite cause of ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Effect of diet and cold exposure on norepinephrine turnover in pancreas and liver. AU - Young, J. B.. AU - Landsberg, L.. PY - 1979/1/1. Y1 - 1979/1/1. N2 - The potential contribution of the sympathetic nervous system to the regulation of the endocrine pancreas and the liver has previously been studied only in vitro or by indirect in vivo methods. This report describes the adaptation of the [3H]norepinephrine ([3H]NE) turnover technique to rat pancreas and liver as well as the application of this technique to the evaluation of sympathetic activity in these organs during cold exposure, fasting, and overfeeding. Cold exposure (4°C) increased the calculated pancreatic NE turnover rate 83% from 16.6 ± 1.1 ng NE/organ per hr to 30.4 ± 1.9 (95% confidence intervals), whereas hepatic NE turnover rate increased only 25% from 47.0 ± 3.4 to 58.7 ± 3.3. Two days of fasting reduced pancreatic NE turnover rate 70% from 26.8 ± 3.0 ng NE/organ per hr to 8.0 ± 0.8, whereas hepatic NE ...

1. Release of [3H]noradrenaline during peri-arterial nerve stimulation and its inhibition by the presynaptic α-adrenoceptor mechanism were studied in the isolated perfused kidney from spontaneously hypertensive and Wistar-Kyoto rats.. 2. A frequency related vasoconstriction as well as [3H]noradrenaline release were observed over the stimulating range of 0.25-32 Hz in both the Wistar-Kyoto and spontaneously hypertensive rats. The spontaneously hypertensive rat kidneys exhibited both an increased vasoconstrictor response and a greater [3H]noradrenaline release when compared with the Wistar-Kyoto rat kidneys.. 3. Presynaptic inhibition of [3H]noradrenaline release was evaluated at 2 Hz by using the α-adrenoceptor agonist, tramazoline. Increasing concentrations of tramazoline from 2 × 10−9 mol/l to 2 × 10−7 mol/l caused a dose-dependent decrease in the stimulus-induced release of [3H]noradrenaline in spontaneously hypertensive rats but not in Wistar-Kyoto rats. Only 2 × 10−7 mol/l ...
The higher efficacy of MSNA on TPR in elderly blacks than whites suggests that sympathetic vascular transduction at the arterioles and/or other nonadrenergic mechanisms concurrently responsible for vasoconstriction may be enhanced in blacks. The enhanced sympathetic vascular transduction may be attributed to a higher concentration of norepinephrine at the neurovascular junction and/or a greater sensitivity/density of postsynaptic adrenergic receptors. Both supine and upright plasma norepinephrine concentrations were similar between groups despite the lower total MSNA response during tilting in blacks. We recognize that plasma norepinephrine is not a direct index of the synaptic level of norepinephrine; however, the change in plasma norepinephrine concentration has been found to correlate well with the interindividual response in MSNA.32 Therefore, the greater sympathetic vascular transduction in elderly blacks may be attributable to a higher synaptic norepinephrine release per unit increase of ...

The release of preloaded radiolabeled norepinephrine ([3H]NE) from slices of rat hippocampus can be stimulated by excitatory amino acids that interact with the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor. The acidic dipeptide N-acetyl-L-aspartylglutamate (NAAG) is colocalized with NE in the cell bodies of locus coeruleus (the origin of the noradrenergic projections to the hippocampus) and the hippocampus itself. The function of NAAG in these neurons has not been demonstrated, although evidence exists that it may serve as a neuromodulator in other neuronal pathways. NAAG inhibited the release of [3H]NE stimulated by NMDA and L-glutamate in a concentration-related manner. The maximal inhibition produced by NAAG was about 25% of the control release stimulated by 25 microM NMDA. The effects observed were caused by the intact dipeptide and not the degradation artifacts produced by the enzyme N-acetylated-alpha-linked-acidic dipeptidase because N-acetyl-L-aspartate had no significant effect on the release ...
Purpose of review Norepinephrine is the first-line agent recommended during resuscitation of septic shock to correct hypotension due to depressed vascular tone. Important clinical issues are the best timing to start norepinephrine, the optimal blood pressure target, and the best therapeutic options to face refractory hypotension when high doses of norepinephrine are required to reach the target. Recent findings Recent literature has reported benefits of early administration of norepinephrine because of the following reasons: profound and durable hypotension is an independent factor of increased mortality, early administration of norepinephrine increases cardiac output, improves microcirculation and avoids fluid overload. Recent data are in favor of targeting a mean arterial pressure of at least 65 mmHg and higher values in case of chronic hypertension. When hypotension is refractory to norepinephrine, it is recommended adding vasopressin, which is relatively deficient during sepsis and acts on other
Disappearance rates of intracisternally administered 3H-norepinephrine and activities of tyrosine hydroxylase were examined in the rabbit in five brain regions (telencephalon, hypothalamus, midbrain, medulla-pons, and cerebellum) and in three cord regions (cervical, thoracolumbar, and lumbosacral) 2 weeks after section of the carotid sinus and aortic nerves. Mean blood pressure rose by 29% and heart rate by 17% in the animals with neurogenic hypertension. Endogenous catecholamine concentrations in the eight regions examined were not altered by denervation. In the thoracolumbar region of the spinal cord, 3H-norepinephrine turnover and tyrosine hydroxylase activity were increased approximately twofold in hypertensive rabbits. We suggest that these changes reflect increased physiological activity of bulbospinal noradrenergic neurons and that this increase may mediate the rise in arterial pressure or heart rate that follows sinoaortic denervation. The turnover of 3H-norepinephrine increased in the ...
Amphetamine released 3-H-norepinephrine from rat cerebral cortex tissue which had previously accumulated the 3-H-amine. Destruction of noradrenergic nerve endings by pretreatment of the rats with 6-hydroxydopamine inhibited the accumulation of 3-H-norepinephrine by the tissue and reduced the proportion of the 3-H-amine which was released by amphetamine. Inhibition of storage of 3-H-norepinephrine within nerve endings by pretreatment of the animals with reserpine also reduced accumulation of 3-H-norepinephrine but did not reduce the proportion of the accumulated 3-H-amine which was released by amphetamine. The addition of desipramine (an inhibitor of neuronal uptake) further reduced the accumulation of 3-H-norepinephrine in animals pretreated with reserpine but had no further effect in animals pretreated with 6-hydroxydopamine. A greater proportion of the 3-H-norepinephrine was converted to 3-H-deaminated metabolites in tissues of reserpine-treated animals than in the tissues of control or ...

BACKGROUND: Both dopamine and norepinephrine are recommended as first-line vasopressor agents in the treatment of shock. There is a continuing controversy about whether one agent is superior to the other.. METHODS: In this multicenter, randomized trial, we assigned patients with shock to receive either dopamine or norepinephrine as first-line vasopressor therapy to restore and maintain blood pressure. When blood pressure could not be maintained with a dose of 20 microg per kilogram of body weight per minute for dopamine or a dose of 0.19 microg per kilogram per minute for norepinephrine, open-label norepinephrine, epinephrine, or vasopressin could be added. The primary outcome was the rate of death at 28 days after randomization; secondary end points included the number of days without need for organ support and the occurrence of adverse events.. RESULTS: The trial included 1679 patients, of whom 858 were assigned to dopamine and 821 to norepinephrine. The baseline characteristics of the groups ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Presynaptic modulation of the norepinephrine-induced β-adrenergic receptor desensitization phenomenon in vivo. AU - Nakamura, I.. AU - Yoshikawa, T.. AU - Anzai, T.. AU - Baba, A.. AU - Iwata, M.. AU - Wainai, Y.. AU - Suzuki, M.. AU - Ogawa, S.. PY - 2000/1/1. Y1 - 2000/1/1. N2 - Background: In vivo administration of norepinephrine fails to cause β-adrenergic receptor desensitization. However, short-term exposure of cultured cells to norepinephrine induces the phenomenon in vitro. We sought to identify the local regulatory mechanisms responsible for in vivo β-adrenergic receptor desensitization in congestive heart failure. Methods and Results: Control rabbits received norepinephrine (n = 7) or saline (n = 7) for 1 week, and rabbits with chemical denervation induced by 6-hydroxydopamine also received norepinephrine (n = 7) or saline (n = 7). Myocardial norepinephrine content decreased 80% in both groups of denervated rabbits. β1-Adrenergic receptor density in denervated ...
The ability of normal and transplanted dog hearts to make, bind, store, and metabolize norepinephrine was studied. Transplanted hearts were used in order to assess the effects of adrenergic denervation. Normal hearts bound large quantities of administered C14-dopamine and synthesized considerable quantities of norepinephrine in both the atria and ventricles. Isolated perfused normal hearts steadily removed about 56% of infused dl-H3-norepinephrine; a binding mechanism was the major means of inactivation of the amine. Uptake of radioactive norepinephrine was greater in the ventricles than in the atria because they received more of the amine, and the turnover rate of the labeled amine was also highest in the ventricles. Subcellular fractionation of the bound amine demonstrated that it was localized in particles of microsomal size; radioautographic studies demonstrated the presence of H3-norepinephrine only in association with nerves. About 57% of the H3-norepinephrine released from normal hearts ...
Norepinephrine (NE), also called noradrenaline (NA) or noradrenalin, is an organic chemical in the catecholamine family that functions in the brain and body as a hormone and neurotransmitter. The name noradrenaline, derived from Latin roots meaning at/alongside the kidneys, is more commonly used in the United Kingdom; in the United States, norepinephrine, derived from Greek roots having that same meaning, is usually preferred. Norepinephrine is also the international nonproprietary name given to the drug. Regardless of which name is used for the substance itself, parts of the body that produce or are affected by it are referred to as noradrenergic. In the brain, norepinephrine is produced in nuclei that are small yet exert powerful effects on other brain areas. The most important of these nuclei is the locus coeruleus, located in the pons. Outside the brain, norepinephrine is used as a neurotransmitter by sympathetic ganglia located near the spinal cord or in the abdomen, and it is also ...

To evaluate the direct effects of the drug on the contractile responses of vascular tissue to adrenergic stimuli, rat caudal artery ring segments were studied before and after the addition of cyclosporin A or its ethanol vehicle in vitro. In a dose-related manner, cyclosporin A augmented the contractile response to transmural nerve stimulation, with a highly significant (p less than 0.001 relative to that produced by the vehicle) lowering of the stimulation rate, a 50% of maximum contractile response (ED50) that elicited. The difference between pretreatment and treatment maximal responses to transmural nerve stimulation was also significantly greater (p less than 0.01) in the cyclosporin A-treated preparations than in those receiving the vehicle. In similar experiments, the responses to exogenous norepinephrine were not significantly affected. The effect of cyclosporin A on transmural nerve stimulation was ...
LOPEZ VERRILLI, María A; RODRIGUEZ FERMEPIN, Martín; FERNANDEZ, Belisario E y GIRONACCI, Mariela M. Role of Angiotensin (1-7) in Neuronal Norepinephrine Reuptake in Hypertension. Rev. argent. cardiol. [online]. 2010, vol.78, n.2, pp. 151-155. ISSN 1850-3748.. We have previously demonstrated that angiotensin (Ang)-(1-7) decreases the release and synthesis of norepinephrine (NE) in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR). In the present study, we have investigated the effect of Ang-(1-7) on neuronal NE reuptake and the expression of NE trans-porter (NET), responsible for eliminating NE from the syn-aptic cleft. Although Ang-(1-7) does not have an acute effect on NE neuronal reuptake, it plays a role in stimulating the protein content of the NET in the long-term. Ang-(1-7) activates Mas receptor and stimulates protein synthesis de novo of the transporter. In this way, Ang-(1-7) would contribute to blood pressure control through the regulation of NE levels in the synaptic cleft.. Palabras clave : ...

We examined the effects of cilnidipine, which is an L and N-type Ca,SUP,2+,/SUP, channel blocker, on adrenergically regulated renal functions in anesthetized dogs. Renal nerve stimulation (RNS) at high frequency (3-7 Hz) decreased renal blood flow (RBF) without changes in systemic blood pressure. The RBF response was inhibited by intrarenal arterial (i.r.a.) infusion of cilnidipine at 0.1-0.3 μg/kg/min. Lowfrequency RNS (0.5 -1 Hz) reduced absolute and fractional urinary sodium excretion. These responses were attenuated during i.r.a. infusion of cilnidipine at 0.3 μg/kg/min. An increase in norepinephrine secretion rate induced by low-frequency RNS was also attenuated during cilnidipine infusion. These results suggest that cilnidipine can suppress norepinephrine release from the renal nerve endings and thereby interfere with the neural control of renal functions.. ...
Medicine for norepinephrine allergy - What is the definition or description of: Norepinephrine allergy? A drug allergy? Norepinephrine is a hormone related to epinephrine (adrenalin). It is a normal constituent of the body, and a true allergy is unlikely. More likely you are describing a reaction to supplemental norepinephrine as a drug. It is primarily used to raise blood pressure in patients with shock. What type of reaction are you asking about?
Normal subjects were given glucose (300 mg/ min) or tolbutamide (1 g, intravenously), alone and during intravenous infusions of norepi-nephrine (6 lg/ min). Immunoreactive insulin concentration was less than expected during the infusions of norepinephrine, but returned to higher values after the norepinephrine infusions. From these data it is concluded that norepinephrine inhibits the release of insulin from pancreatic beta cells. ...
AIMS: We examined the effect of norepinephrine (NE) infusion on left ventricular function and apoptotic genes during progression of polymicrobial sepsis. METHODS: Male Sprague-Dawley rats (350-400 g) were made septic by intraperitoneal (i.p.) administration of 200mg/kg cecal inoculum. Sham animals received 5% dextrose water, i.p. Echocardiography was performed at baseline, 3 days and 7 days post-sepsis/sham. NE (0.6 μgkg(-1)h(-1)) was infused for 2h, before the end of day 3 of echocardiography. At the end of day 7, rats were euthanized and heart tissues harvested for isolation of total RNA. PCR was performed using RT(2) profiler™ PCR array PARN-012 (Rat apoptosis array; SuperArray, MD) using RT(2) Real-Time™ SYBR Green PCR master mix PA-012. KEY FINDINGS: NE-infusion resulted in a significant decrease in the left ventricular ejection fraction (EF) (62.56±2.07 from the baseline 71.11±3.23, p SIGNIFICANCE: The data suggest that upregulation of a series of pro-apoptotic molecules could be

In the present study we have demonstrated that norepinephrine, but not serotonin, activates a stem and precursor cell pool in the adult hippocampus, and have provided evidence for a direct action of norepinephrine on these precursors. Importantly, we have uncovered a novel role for β3-adrenergic receptors in mediating the norepinephrine-dependent activation of the hippocampal precursors both in vitro and in vivo. Consistent with these results, our findings from the slice-sphere assay demonstrate that antidepressants that selectively block the reuptake of norepinephrine but not serotonin enhance hippocampal neurogenesis, primarily by targeting the activity of stem and precursor cells.. The norepinephrine-responsive precursor population appears remarkably similar to the previously identified latent population of stem and precursor cells activated by depolarizing levels of KCl (Walker et al., 2008). The most striking common feature between norepinephrine- and KCl-mediated activation is the ...

In particular surgical conditions, a balanced anesthesia with a high-antinociceptive contribution is required. This may induce cardiovascular impairment and thus compromise tissue oxygenation. In this prospective observational study, we investigated the hemodynamic stability and tissue oxygen saturation (StO2) in 40 patients with a high-antinociceptive general anesthesia, goal-directed fluid therapy, and norepinephrine. In addition, optimal surgical conditions and safe and fast emergence are pivotal parts of anesthetic management. In high-antinociceptive propofol/remifentanil anesthesia with bispectral index (BIS) between 40 and 60, norepinephrine was administered to maintain mean arterial pressure (MAP) above 80% of individual baseline. Fluid was administered if the ∆ plethysmographic waveform amplitude exceeded 10%. Surgical and recovery conditions, hemodynamic responses, and tissue oxygenation were investigated. Mean (SD) StO2 at the left thenar eminence increased from 83 (6)% before to 86 (4)% 20

The ability of exercise to reduce depression has long been known, and many supporting studies have been published for the last few decades. Fortunately, you dont have to run to reap the benefits. Not everyone is physically able to run, or even jog. Walking regularly can have a significant effect on depression. I think one of the better studies showed that we should walk 5 days a week, for at least a half hour, for the best benefit. Also noted: Another theory is that exercise stimulates the neurotransmitter norepinephrine, which may directly improve mood. ...

four). Even though the helpful outcome of CB1 receptor antagonism in collagen-induced arthritis in mice was attributed to βtwo-receptor activation on splenocytes, numerous other mechanisms may add for the therapeutic outcomes. CB1 antagonism at sympathetic terminals bordering the synovium may need unique results depending on the magnitude of Restoration of norepinephrine stages in the joint. If βtwo signaling is restored in synovial tissue, nearby concentrations of IFN-γ and TNF may decrease, bringing about an General lower in joint destruction, synovial inflammation and pain [102, 103] (Fig. two). On the other hand, considering the fact that we shown a boost of sympathetic fibers in human synovial adipose tissue, increased norepinephrine release may well even further improve lipolysis and thereby fuel inflammation [91]. Therefore, it truly is very important to maintain norepinephrine concentrations more than a certain βtwo activation threshold in the synovium, which might only be attained ...
Norepinephrine Norepinephrine[1] Chemical name 4-(2-Amino-1-hydroxyethyl)benzene-1,2-diol Other names Noradrenaline Chemical formula C8H11NO3 Molecular mass
Norepinephrine definition is - a monoamine C8H11NO3 that is a neurotransmitter in postganglionic neurons of the sympathetic nervous system and in some parts of the central nervous system, is a vasopressor hormone of the adrenal medulla, and is a precursor of epinephrine in its major biosynthetic pathway.
Nerve cells in the brain send signals to one another by releasing chemicals called neurotransmitters that bind to specific sites on other nerve cells and activate or inhibit a cells activity. One of the neurotransmitters in the brain is called norepinephrine; it is released by specific types of nerve cells located in a region called the locus coeruleus or LC. Scientists have observed that nerve cells in the LC are especially vulnerable to damage during Alzheimers disease. Specific binding sites for norepinephrine are known as adrenergic receptors. One type of these receptors, known as beta2-adrenergic receptor, are found in parts of the brain that receive signals from the LC, which is important for learning and memory. Decreased beta2-adrenergic signaling, as occurs when norepinephrine cells from the LC are damaged in Alzheimers disease, may contribute to impairments in learning and memory. Researchers working at the Palo Alto Institute for Research and Education, Inc., have been studying ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Plasma norepinephrine and epinephrine responses to glucagon in patients with suspected pheochromocytomas. AU - Levinson, Paul D.. AU - Hamilton, Bruce P.. AU - Mersey, James H.. AU - Kowarski, A. Avinoam. PY - 1983/10. Y1 - 1983/10. N2 - Plasma norepinephrine and epinephrine levels were measured before and after glucagon administration in 28 patients suspected of having a pheochromocytoma: three patients were subsequently found to have tumors. The norepinephrine response predicted the presence or absence of a tumor in 27 of the 28 patients. Epinephrine levels doubled, on the average, in patients who did not have pheochromocytomas, and were not useful in distinguishing the patients with or without tumors. A comparison of the response to glucagon and a placebo indicated that changes in plasma catecholamine levels were hormone-related and not the result of side-effects accompanying injection. The glucagon provocation test, with measurement of plasma norepinephrine and epinephrine ...
Thompson, Caitlin S., Lacy A. Holowatz, and W. Larry Kenney. Cutaneous vasoconstrictor responses to norepinephrine are attenuated in older humans. Am J Physiol Regul Integr Comp Physiol 288: R1108 -R1113, 2005. First published January 20, 2005; doi:10.1152/ajpregu.00839.2004.-Cutaneous vasoconstriction (VC) in response to cooling is impaired with human aging. On the basis of previous findings that older humans rely predominantly on norepinephrine (NE) for reflex VC of skin blood vessels, and that the VC effects of NE are blunted with age in many vascular beds, we tested the hypothesis that cutaneous VC responses to exogenous NE are attenuated in aged skin compared with young skin. In 11 young (18-30 yr) and 11 older (62-76 yr) men and women, skin blood flow was monitored at two forearm sites with laser Doppler (LD) flowmetry, while local skin temperature was clamped at 34°C. At one site, five doses of NE (10 10 to 10 2 M) were sequentially infused via intradermal microdialysis while the other site
1. Stressful sympathetic stimulation (cold pressor test) was applied to 18 patients with essential hypertension and 15 normotensive subjects. Intra-arterial blood pressure, heart rate, plasma adrenaline and noradrenaline concentrations as well as forearm blood flow were measured before and during the cold pressor test; tests were repeated after regional postsynaptic α1-adrenoceptor blockade with prazosin.. 2. Under basal conditions mean blood pressure (P , 0.001), heart rate (P , 0.01), forearm blood flow (P , 0.001) as well as adrenaline concentration (P , 0.01), but not noradrenaline, was higher in patients with essential hypertension.. 3. During the cold pressor test, mean blood pressure, heart rate, plasma adrenaline and noradrenaline concentrations increased and forearm flow decreased (all P , 0.001).. 4. Stress-stimulated plasma adrenaline was higher in essential hypertensive patients than in normotensive subjects (P , 0.01). In the former the stress-induced increase in plasma adrenaline ...
Differences in the norepinephrine system are implicated in depression. Serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors are antidepressants that treat depression by increasing the amount of serotonin and norepinephrine available to postsynaptic cells in the brain. There is some recent evidence implying that SNRIs may also increase dopamine transmission.[15] This is because SNRIs work by inhibiting reuptake, i.e. preventing the serotonin and norepinephrine transporters from taking their respective neurotransmitters back to their storage vesicles for later use. If the norepinephrine transporter normally recycles some dopamine too, then SNRIs will also enhance dopaminergic transmission. Therefore, the antidepressant effects associated with increasing norepinephrine levels may also be partly or largely due to the concurrent increase in dopamine (particularly in the prefrontal cortex of the brain). Tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs) increase norepinephrine activity as well. Most of them also increase ...
Ascorbic acid (ascorbate) participates in critical steps of the biosynthesis of norepinephrine, including those mediated by tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) and dopamine-β-hydroxylase (DBH). For example, DBH is responsible for the conversion of dopamine into norepinephrine in noradrenergic terminals and requires the activity of the ascorbate-coupled cytochrome b561 protein (CYB561). The recent identification of 2 families harboring CYB561 gene mutations manifested with longstanding orthostatic hypotension (OH)1,2 resembling the phenotype of DBH deficiency3,4 emphasizes the important role of ascorbic acid-related processes in sympathetic control of blood pressure. ...
6) Antidepressants with mixed neurotransmitter results like Desyrel (trade title Trazodone) may be helpful for panic disorders, anxiety and restlessness. They are thought to work by elevating these neurotransmitter levels. 5) Norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (NRIs) like Edronax increase norepinephrine levels only and are thought to enhance focus and motivation. 3) Norepinephrine and dopamine reuptake inhibitors (NDRIs) improve norepinephrine and dopamine ranges. 4) Norepinephrine and specific serotonergic antidepressants (NASSAs) like Tolvon and Remeron are newer medication which increase norepinephrine and serotonin but may have fewer (though different) negative effects, like drowsiness, elevated appetite, and weight acquire. Antidepressant medications are primarily based on the speculation that low ranges of the brain neurotransmitters serotonin and norepinephrine trigger depression. Only pharmaceutical companies put inventory (both actually and financially) in the idea that prescriptions ...
The Heart and Soul Study considers the psychosocial factors and health outcomes in patients with coronary disease. Depressive symptoms have been associated with an increased risk of cardiac events in patients with heart disease. The goal of this study was to examine the association between depressive symptoms and 24-hour urinary norepinephrine, epinephrine, and dopamine excretion levels in 598 patients with coronary heart disease. Depressive symptoms were measured using the nine-item Patient Health Questionnaire, a self-report checklist of depressive symptoms derived from the Primary Care Evaluation of Mental Disorders interview. The study found that depressive symptoms were not associated with abnormal urinary levels of epinephrine or dopamine excretion. However, 9.4 percent of the participants with depressive symptoms had a norepinephrine value above the normal range. This association persisted after adjustment for age, sex, body mass index, smoking, urinary creatinine levels, comorbid ...

Electrical renal nerve stimulation (RNS; 1 and 2 Hz) increased renal perfusion pressure and renal norepinephrine (NE) efflux. Nonselective NO synthase (NOS) inhibitors [Nω-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME) or Nω-nitro-L-arginine], but not a selective neuronal NO synthase inhibitor (7-nitroindazole sodium salt), suppressed the NE efflux response and enhanced the perfusion pressure response. Pretreatment with L-arginine prevented the effects of L-NAME on the RNS-induced responses. ...
Experiments were performed to determine the effect of aggregating platelets on adrenergic neurotransmission. Rings of canine saphenous veins and left circumflex coronary arteries were incubated with [3H]norepinephrine and suspended for superfusion. Aggregating platelets and exogenous 5-hydroxytryptamine decreased the overflow of [3H]norepinephrine evoked by electrical stimulation of the adrenergic nerve endings. The reduction of transmitter overflow caused by 5-hydroxytryptamine was prevented by the serotonergic antagonist methiothepin in a concentration that did not significantly affect the release of 5-hydroxytryptamine or thromboxane B2 from the aggregating platelets. Methiothepin decreased but did not abolish the inhibitory effect of aggregating platelets on neurotransmitter overflow. These experiments demonstrate that 5-hydroxytryptamine and other substances released from aggregating platelets can exert prejunctional inhibition of adrenergic neurotransmission in isolated blood vessels ...
The locus coeruleus is responsible for mediating many of the sympathetic effects during stress. The locus coeruleus is activated by stress, and will respond by increasing norepinephrine secretion, which in turn will alter cognitive function (through the prefrontal cortex), increase motivation (through nucleus accumbens), activate the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, and increase the sympathetic discharge/inhibit parasympathetic tone (through the brainstem).. Specific to the activation of the hypothalamo-pituitary adrenal axis, norepinephrine will stimulate the secretion of corticotropin-releasing factor from the hypothalamus, that induces adrenocorticotropic hormone release from the anterior pituitary and subsequent cortisol synthesis in the adrenal glands. Norepinephrine released from locus coeruleus will feedback to inhibit its production, and corticotropin-releasing hormone will feedback to inhibit its production, while positively feeding to the locus coeruleus to increase norepinephrine ...
BACKGROUND: Significantly increased plasma and CSF IL-6 levels reflect underlying tissue damage following clinical and experimental traumatic brain injury (TBI). Catecholamines, used under clinical conditions to maintain adequate cerebral perfusion pressure, induce a sustained IL-6 release. Thus an additional elevation in IL-6 could aggravate brain edema in the acute posttraumatic phase. We studied the changes in plasma and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) IL-6 levels 4 and 24 hours after experimental TBI and assessed possible time-dependent effects of norepinephrine infusion on IL-6 and brain edema. MATERIAL/METHODS: Paired plasma and CSF IL-6 measured at 4 and 24 hours following TBI (n=10) were compared to levels in non-traumatized rats (n=5). In a placebo-controlled trial, 20 brain-injured male Sprague-Dawley rats were randomized to receive norepinephrine or NaCl for 90 minutes at 4 or 24 hours after TBI. Plasma IL-6 was measured before, during, and after the infusion period. One hour after stopping ...

Norepinephrine (NE), a sympathetic neurotransmitter, is often measured in plasma as an index of sympathetic activity. To better understand NE dynamics, it is important to measure its principal metabolite, 3,4-dihydroxyphenylglycol (DHPG), concurrently. Our aim was to present a method, developed in the course of a translational research study, to measure NE and DHPG in human plasma using high performance liquid chromatography with electrochemical detection (HPLC-ED). After pre-purifying plasma samples by alumina extraction, we used HPLC-ED to separate and quantify NE and DHPG. In order to remove uric acid, which co-eluted with DHPG, a sodium bicarbonate wash was added to the alumina extraction procedure, and we oxidized the column eluates followed by reduction because catechols are reversibly oxidized whereas uric acid is irreversibly oxidized. Average recoveries of plasma NE and DHPG were 35.3 ± 1.0% and 16.3 ± 1.1%, respectively, and there was no detectable uric acid. Our estimated detection limits

The present study was designed to investigate the influence of aging on noradrenaline content and the density and pattern of prejunctional dopamine D2 receptors in the tail (ventral caudal) artery of male Sprague-Dawley rats. Tail artery is frequently used as a model for investigating mechanisms of sympathetic vascular control and contains prejunctional dopamine receptor belonging to the D2 subtype. Noradrenaline levels were reduced in rats of 12 months of age in comparison with 3-month-old animals. A further reduction in catecholamine concentration was found in 24-month-old rats. The density of prejunctional D2 receptors, which was measured in frozen sections of the tail artery by using both radioligand binding and autoradiographic techniques, was reduced by about 35% in 12-month rats in comparison with 3-month rats. A decrease by about 55% versus 3-month rats and by about 20% versus 12-month rats was observed in 24-month-old rats. Neither the pharmacological profile nor the anatomical ...
1. The aim of the present study was to investigate noradrenaline (NA)-induced regulation of alpha(1) -adrenoceptor (AR) mRNA expression in human embryonic kidney (HEK) 293 cells stably expressing cloned alpha(1) -AR subtypes with similar receptor densities. Stable transfection was performed by calcium phosphate precipitation. Receptor expression was detected by radioligand binding assay. The mRNA expression was measured by RNase protection assay.. 2. alpha(1) -Adrenoceptor subtype mRNA respond in distinct ways following prolonged exposure to NA. The mRNA level of the alpha(1A) -AR subtype was unchanged, the mRNA level of the alpha(1B) -AR subtype was increased and the mRNA level of the alpha(1D) -AR subtype declined time dependently. The protein kinase C (PKC) inhibitor calphostin C or RO 31-8220 abolished the NA-induced downregulation of alpha(1D) -AR mRNA. Phorbol myristate acetate (PMA), a PKC activator, similarly repressed the effects of NA on alpha(1D) -AR. However, calphostin C, RO 31-8220 ...
The entorhinal cortex is a gateway to the hippocampus; it receives inputs from several cortical associative areas as well as subcortical areas. Since there is evidence showing that noradrenaline reduces the epileptic activity generated in the entorhinal cortex, we have examined the action of noradrenaline in the superficial layer of the entorhinal cortex, which is the main source of afferents to the hippocampus. In a previous study we showed that noradrenaline hyperpolarized layer II entorhinal cortex neurons and reduced global synaptic transmission via alpha 2-adrenoreceptors. Here we present a detailed analysis of the effect of noradrenaline on membrane resistance and on the pharmacologically isolated postsynaptic potentials in layer II entorhinal cortex neurons of mice. Noradrenaline (50 microM) hyperpolarized most layer II entorhinal cortex neurons. This hyperpolarization corresponded to an outward current with a reversal potential following the Nernst equilibrium potential for potassium. The
There is no question that angiotensin II can play its enhancing effects on the sympathetic nervous system at various levels and that not only a presynaptic potentiation of norepinephrine secretion but also an amplification of the responsiveness of adrenergic receptors to neural stimuli is involved as indicated by the data of Lyons et al.R1 In a study we performed several years ago in humans,R2 we also suggested this to be the case because in hypertensive patients both acute and long-term ACE inhibition attenuated the reflex increase in forearm vascular resistance due to unloading of cardiac receptors without any concomitant alteration of the reflex increase in plasma norepinephrine.. There is also no question that the enhancing effect of angiotensin II on sympathetic cardiovascular influences is reciprocated because sympathetic nerve activity is an important determinant of renal secretion of reninR3 R4 and thus of the activity of the renin-angiotensin system. It is certainly possible, on the ...
Pharmacology. Norepinephrine is an endogenous catecholamine that stimulates mainly alpha-adrenergic receptors. It is used primarily as a vasopressor to increase systemic vascular resistance and venous return to the heart. Norepinephrine is also a weak beta1-adrenergic receptor agonist, and it may increase the heart rate and cardiac contractility in patients with shock. Norepinephrine is not effective orally and is absorbed erratically after subcutaneous injection. After intravenous administration, the onset of action is nearly immediate, and the duration of effect is 1-2 minutes after the infusion is discontinued. ...
Results IL-7 stimulated IL-7R+ mature B cells act proinflammatory (increased clinical score, increased anticollagen type II antibodies) after cell transfer in CIA. The sympathetic neurotransmitter norepinephrine abrogates this effect. Expression of IL-7Rα is increased when B cells are activated (anti-CD40 or lipopolysaccharide) in vitro and stimulating the IL-7R induces intracellular accumulation of pSTAT5. α- And β-adrenergic agonists show no influence on expression levels of IL-7R on activated B cells; however, intracellular IL-7R downstream signalling is abrogated via the β2-adreonceptor (β2AR) agonist terbutaline. IL-7R and β2AR are also expressed on B cells in synovial tissue from RA and OA patients.. ...

Norepinephrine uptake into a crude preparation of rat brain synaptic vesicles showed a marked dependence on Mg2+ concentration. Mn2+ or Co+ could substitute for Mg2+, but displayed lower affinities. Zn2+, Ni2+ and Ca2+ stimulated uptake only slightly and other divalent cations were ineffective. ATP, GTP and UTP produced stimulation of norepinephrine uptake, but only ATP was fully effective. ADP and AMP inhibited the ATP-induced stimulation. The irreversible inhibitor of ATPases, N-ethylmaleimide (NEM), blocked norepinephrine uptake; the effect was enhanced by pre-incubation of the vesicle preparation with NEM prior to addition of the cofactors and the enhancement was partially prevented by addition of ATP-Mg2+ during the pre-incubation. Replacement of K+ by Na+ in the medium did not alter norepinephrine uptake, but Li+ inhibited uptake by competing with Mg2+. The use of hypertonic medium inhibited uptake, while hypotonic medium markedly enhanced only the nonspecific uptake component (not ATP or ...

L-phenylalanine is an essential amino acid that can be converted to L-tyrosine in the liver. L-tyrosine can be converted in the brain and in the adrenal glands to dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine (adrenaline) hormones that are depleted by stress, overwork and certain drugs. By replenishing norepinephrine in the brain, mental energy levels are enhanced and a feeling of contentment often occurs. The conversion step from L-tyrosine to norepinephrine may be enhanced if the co-factors (vitamins B6 and C) are included.. Cells in the adrenal medulla synthesize and secrete norepinephrine and epinephrine. Since both norepinephrine and epinephrine can cause smooth muscle (arterial) contraction, care with blood pressure should be taken when supplementing with L-phenylalanine or tyrosine.. D, L-phenylalanine is a 50/50 mixture of its two stereoisomers. ...
Introduction: We aimed to investigate the role of α- and β-receptors in control of contractile activity in circular jejunal muscle in rat and to delineate changes in adrenergic neurotransmission during postoperative ileus.. Materials and methods: Muscle strips (n=8/rat) of 6 naive (NC) and 8 Sprague Dawley rats after small bowel manipulation (POI) were studied. Ileus was confirmed by delayed small bowel transit. Dose-response curves were generated for phenylephrine (α-agonist; 10-8-3x10-6M) and isoprenaline (β-agonist; 3x10-10-10-7M) and effects of bethanechol-precontraction (3x10-6M), L-NIL and nimesulide (inhibiting inducible NO-synthase (10-4M) and cyclooxygenase-2 (10-5M)), L-NNA (non-specific NO-synsthase inhibitor; 10-4M), tetrodotoxin (TTX; blocking enteric nervous system; 10-6M), phentolamine (α-antagonist; 10-5M) or propranolol (β-antagonist; 5x10-6M) on response to agonists were studied. Release of excitatory neurotransmitters was investigated by electrical field stimulation ...
Clonidine functions as a sympatholytic by stimulating presynaptic α2-receptors leading to decreased release of norepinephrine at both central and peripheral adrenergic terminals. In addition to its influence on the autonomic nervous system, it is well established that clonidine is an effective analgesic, and this is also attributable to its α2-agonist activity.. Remember that a tremendous amount of modulation of incoming pain signals occurs in the dorsal horn of the spinal cord prior to being sent to higher centers in the CNS. Messages are either strengthened or attenuated by release of various neurotransmitters by primary afferent Aδ or C fibers, interneurons, and descending bulbospinal fibers. Nociceptive stimuli will promote release of excitatory transmitters from primary afferents in the dorsal horn. To compensate, there is simultaneous release of norepinephrine from descending inhibitory bulbospinal neurons, which binds to α2-receptors in the dorsal horn to diminish afferent pain ...
Despite extensive clinical study, there is no distinct consensus on the optimal management of fibromyalgia. The cause of fibromyalgia has not been clearly defined, but several mechanisms may be involved. Abnormalities in sleep patterns, muscle structure, and cerebral blood flow have been associated with the syndrome, but it is unclear whether a causal relation exists between these abnormalities and fibromyalgia. Recent evidence suggests that alterations in the metabolism and function of the neurotransmitters serotonin, norepinephrine, and substance P may contribute to the development of fibromyalgia. No pharmacologic agents are indicated specifically for the treatment of fibromyalgia in the United States, and most pharmacologic therapies show only limited success, although drugs that affect serotonin or norepinephrine at the receptor site (such as antidepressants or tramadol) seem to generate the most consistent results. Tricyclic antidepressants may diminish the sleep disturbance and pain ...
During the follow-up, BNP, NT-proBNP, and norepinephrine progressively decreased in group T (F = 7.49, p , 0.01; F = 4.84, p , 0.01; and F = 9.88, p , 0.001, respectively) but not in group C (Fig. 1). No changes were found in either group with respect to plasma renin activity and aldosterone. At the end of the program, peak Vo2in group T inversely correlated to BNP (R = 0.52, p , 0.001), NT-proBNP (R = 0.51, p , 0.001), and norepinephrine levels (R = 0.49, p , 0.001) at a similar extent, as compared with baseline. A similar correlation was found between Ve/Vco2slope and the levels of BNP (R = 0.61, p , 0.001), NT-proBNP (R = 0.60, p , 0.001), and norepinephrine (R = 0.59, p , 0.001). The change in peak Vo2at the end of the program was correlated with BNP and NT-proBNP changes (R = 0.42, p , 0.001 and R = 0.31, p , 0.01, respectively), but not with norepinephrine changes (Fig. 2).Conversely, no correlation was found between the decrease in BNP, NT-proBNP, and norepinephrine values and the ...
Catecholamines:. Catecholamines are synthesized in the medulla of the adrenal gland. Theyre then released into the circulation. The catecholamines bind to adrenergic receptors all over the body, which causes the same effects as sympathetic activation. The adrenal medulla releases catecholamines in response to sympathetic stimulation. As such, we should think of the circulating catecholamines as an extension of the sympathetic nervous system.. There are two main types of adrenergic receptors, alpha adrenergic and beta adrenergic receptors. Each main type has multiple subtypes. Each subtype has different functions and each subtype has different affinity for the two catecholamines norepinephrine and epinephrine.. ...

N2 - Low frequency (2 Hz) of electrical depolarisation induced [3H]noradrenaline ([3H]NA) release has been measured from the isolated main pulmonary artery of the rabbit in the presence of uptake blockers (cocaine, 3x10-5M and corticosterone, 5x10-5M), with parallel measurements of post- junctional contractile responses. The K+(ATP)-channel opener pinacidil (10- 6-10-4M), slightly potentiated the nerve-evoked release of [3H]NA which failed to show close concentration-dependency. Large concentration of pinacidil (10-4M) increased the ratio of [3H]NA release from 0.99±0.02 to 1.28±0.05 (P-4M caused nearly 70% inhibition of contractile response. The pre- and post-junctional effects of pinacidil were studied under ...
Understanding the biochemistry of catecholamines is necessary to see how the adrenal medulla is designed in the stages of embryology and how it is suited for life in the neonate and adult. The epinephrine and norepinephrine in the neonate and adult work by primarily changing the osmoregulatory state of vasculature in organs. With the exclusion of their neuromodulatory and neurotransmitter functions, epinephrine and norepinephrine are mainly tasked with the control of sympathetic and parasympathetic supplies. Norepinephrine is a constrictor of peripheral vasculature by antagonising the action of surface receptors expressed on the endothelium of blood vessels, specifically Alpha-1 and Alpha-2 receptors, such that vascular resistance increases. Epinephrine is both a vasoconstrictor and vasodilator, depending on what receptors it attaches to. As a non-selective adrenergic agonist, it acts on Alpha-1, Alpha-2, Beta-1, Beta-2 and Beta-3 receptors that are found throughout the bodys tissues, yielding ...

Harmonised classification and labelling is a legally binding classification and labelling for a substance, agreed at European Community level. Harmonisation is based on the substances physical, toxicological and eco-toxicological hazard assessment. The Hazard classification and labelling section uses the signal word, pictogram(s) and hazard statements of the substance under the harmonised classification and labelling (CLH) as its primary source of information.. If the substance is covered by more than one CLH entry (e.g. disodium tetraborate EC no. 215-540-4, is covered by three harmonisations: 005-011-00-4; 005-011-01-1 and 005-011-02-9), CLH information cannot be displayed in the InfoCard as the difference between the CLH classifications requires manual interpretation or verification. If a substance is classified under multiple CLH entries, a link to the C&L Inventory is provided to allow users to view CLH information associated with the substance, instead of having the information ...

  • Norepinephrine is given as an injection through a needle placed into a large vein. (
  • Norepinephrine can damage the skin or tissues around the injection site if the medication accidentally leaks out of the vein. (
  • Injection of norepinephrine in the lateral ventricles of rats recovering from lateral hypothalamic anorexia caused immediate feeding and, frequently, overeating. (
  • I chose norepinephrine, an excitatory neurotransmitter that causes the brain to feel of intense focus and awareness. (
  • Norepinephrine is a naturally occurring chemical in the body that acts as both a stress hormone and neurotransmitter (a substance that sends signals between nerve cells). (
  • discovered that genetically engineered mice unable to synthesize norepinephrine because of a targeted disruption of the dopamine β-hydroxylase (DBH) gene appear totally blind to morphine reward, as measured in a conditioned place preference test. (
  • When mice are in this sustained state of vigilance, a lot of norepinephrine is released, coupled with gradually building cAMP," explains first author Yuki Oe, a research scientist in Hirase's group. (
  • Neither calcium nor cAMP responses were seen in mice that were given norepinephrine-blocking drugs, indicating that norepinephrine release is indeed the trigger for these changes. (
  • When the researchers put lab mice through behavioral tests, they found that exposure to norepinephrine made normal mice remember events more clearly. (

  • Fenfluramine-induced PVAT-dependent contraction depends on norepinephrine and not serotonin. (
  • Plasma levels of norepinephrine also will fluctuate because of rapid metabolism rates and environmental, emotional, and endogenous stimuli provoking a sympathetic response. (
  • Norepinephrine and epinephrine responses to physiological and pharmacological stimulation in chronic fatigue syndrome. (
  • The cellular events associated with sympathetic activation of BAT thermogenesis are the binding of norepinephrine (NE) released from sympathetic nerve terminal to β-adrenergic receptor, the activation of adenylate cyclase, and increased hydrolysis of triglyceride. (
