Potentiation of catecholamine inhibition of ganglionic transmission by Î”9-tetrahydrocannabinol
The effect of Î”9-tetrahydrocannabinol upon exogenous catecholamine inhibition of synaptic transmission was evaluated in the rabbit superior cervical ganglion. Î”9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (7.5 and 15 Î¼g/kg, i.v.) was without effect upon electrically evoked transmission, but potentiated norepinephrine-induced ganglionic inhibition. Epinephrine, but not dopamine, was similarly facilitated. Â© 1977.
