Abstract

The β-adrenoceptor antagonist [125I]cyanopindolol (CYP) was used to localize β-adrenoceptors in sections of rabbit ear. Biochemical studies demonstrated that the binding was stereoselective, and that the β-adrenoceptors are predominantly of the β2-subtype. Autoradiographic studies using 3H-Ultrofilm or nuclear emulsion coated coverslips showed high concentrations of β2-adrenoceptors present in the central ear artery, hyaline cartilage, nerve trunks, epithelium and sebaceous glands.
