Advances in the Biosciences, Volume 82: Presynaptic Receptors and Neuronal Transporters documents the proceedings of the Official Satellite Symposium to the IUPHAR 1990 Congress held in Rouen, France on June 26-29, 1990. The first part of this book deals with the extensive and still increasing list of presynaptic release-modulating auto and heteroreceptors, emphasizing the various subtypes of presynaptic receptors that are characterized by functional studies, both in vitro and in vivo, using a number of experimental approaches. The next chapters are devoted to the molecular pharmacology of presynaptic receptors, of which can interfere with G proteins and modify the activity of adenylate cyclase, guanylate cyclase, or protein kinase C. The purification and molecular biology of transporter systems, including cloning and sequencing of the neuronal sodium-ion coupled GABA transporter are also discussed. This compilation concludes with insights on the function of presynaptic receptors and neuronal transporters both in the periphery and in the CNS, as well as their ubiquitous locations and physiological roles. This publication is a good reference for students and individuals researching on the presynaptic autoreceptors and neurotransmitters.

Preface Physiological and Pharmacological Relevance of Presynaptic Receptors in Neurotransmission Pre- and Postjunctional Muscarinic Receptors in the Guinea-Pig Trachea Presynaptic α-Autoadrenoceptors on Peripheral Noradrenergic Neurones of Newborn Rabbits and Dogs Cholinergic-Adrenergic Presynaptic Interactions in the Heart and Characterization of the Receptors Involved Structural Requirements for DA2 (Peripheral) Dopamine Receptor Agonist Activity α2-Adrenoceptor Modulation Or Noradrenaline Release in Human and Rabbit Renal Arteries: Clonidine Acts as a Partial Agonist Effect of α2-Adrenoceptor Antagonists on Norephine Release and Inhibition of Insulin Secretion During Pancreatic Nerve Stimulation. Interactions at Pre- and Postsynaptic Sites Antagonist Activity of Sl 84.0418 and Idazoxan at Pre and Post Synaptic α2-Adrenoreceptors Does the Distance Between Nerve Varicosities and Adrenoceptors Play Any Role in the Relative Contribution of Atp/Noradrenaline for Postjunctional Response?
