... at 100 nmol l –1 . Tyramine also activated the receptor but with much less potency than octopamine. Dopamine and serotonin had marginal effects on cAMP production. Using a series of known agonists and antagonists for octopamine receptors, we observed a rather unique pharmacological profile for CsOA2B2...

...: (1) mesohyl-mediated contraction originating from fusiform smooth muscle-like actinocytes (‘myocytes’) and (2) epidermal contraction originating in pinacocytes. No direct support exists for either hypothesis. The question of agonist–antagonist interaction in sponge contraction seems to have been...

... the first functional expression of a crustacean 5-HT 1 receptor, and show that it inhibits accumulation of cAMP. The drugs mCPP and quipazine are 5-HT 1α agonists and are ineffective at 5-HT 2β . Conversely, methiothepin and cinanserin are antagonists of 5-HT 2β but do not block 5-HT 1α . A comparison...

We used pharmacological agonists and antagonists to show that these three classes of modulatory response in the STG...
