Ginsberg et al. 20) demonstrated increased beta-adrenergic receptor density of mononuclear cells in T 3-induced thyrotoxicosis. Anderson 21) reported the increase of beta-adrenergic receptor number of leukocytes in hyperthyroidism. Furthermore, little has been known about the changes of beta-adrenergic receptors in by: 1.   Triiodothyronine (T 3) treatment of thyroidectomized rats increased the concentration of β-adrenergic receptors (β-AR) and decreased the density of α-adrenergic receptors (α-AR) in heart and submaxillary dectomy decreased the density of β-AR in skeletal muscle sarcolemmal membrane. These results provide evidence for the involvement of thyroid hormone in the regulation of Cited by: 1.   The widespread use of β-adrenergic receptor (βAR) antagonists (β-blockers) to treat hyperthyroidism has led to the belief that the physiological consequences of thyroid hormone (TH) excess are mediated in part via catecholamine signaling through by: Increased myocardial β-receptors and adrenergic responses in hyperthyroid pigs.

  On the other hand, the vasodepressor response induced by the 5-HT is mainly mediated by 5-HT 7 (7,8,36), 5-HT 1B/1D receptors (6,37), and 5-ht 5B receptors. Remarkably, the vasodepressor response of the 5-HT reduced in hypothyroid rats at μg/kg, suggesting a dysfunction of the 5-HT vascular receptors. It can be concluded that in hypothyroidism TEG and glucose tolerance are decreased while the adrenergic response to glucose administration is enhanced. Presumably, these changes are related to decreased insulin sensitivity and responsiveness to catecholamine action. 1.   Increased catecholamine effects via increased beta–adrenergic receptor binding and post-receptor responsiveness are prominent manifestations of the hyperthyroid state (tachycardia, tremor and lid lag) and are manifested in the face of normal or lowered circulating concentrations of catecholamines (Fisher, ).

  adrenergic receptor: Any of several sites in the surface membranes of cells innervated by adrenergic neurons. The adrenergic receptors (or adrenoceptors) are a class of metabotropic G protein -coupled receptors that are targets of the catecholamines, especially norepinephrine or noradrenaline, and epinephrine (adrenaline). Cardiovascular alterations in hypo- and hyperthyroidism have been ascribed to changes of noradrenergic neurotransmission. In the present study the influence of thyroid hormones on adrenoceptors in the rat heart was further characterized. The effect of artificial hypothyroidism (induced by feeding 6-propylthiouracil, PTU) and hyperthyroidism (induced by daily injections of triiodothyronine.
