Disease relevance of alprenolol

  • Effect of alprenolol on mortality among patients with definite or suspected acute myocardial infarction. Preliminary results [1].
  • Influence of alprenolol on hemodynamic and metabolic responses to prolonged exercise in subjects with hypertension [2].
  • The plasma concentrations of alprenolol and its metabolite 4-hydroxy-alprenolol and the inhibition of exercise tachycardia were studied for 7 hr after the alprenolol [3].
  • Depolarised and diseased myocardium is more sensitive to alprenolol and the drug's membrane depressant actions may be significant in terminating arrhythmias in such tissue [4].
  • The effects of IPC on calpain, alpha-fodrin, and LDH release were blunted by the application of the PKA inhibitor H89 or alprenolol during IPC, while transient stimulation of PKA with CPT-cAMP or isoproterenol before ischemia attenuated calpain activation, alpha-fodrin degradation, and markedly reduced LDH release (P<0.001) [5].

Anatomical context of alprenolol

  • Identification of beta-adrenergic receptors in human lymphocytes by (-) (3H) alprenolol binding [6].
  • As an additional control, pooled inguinal adipose tissue from adult male Sprague-Dawley rats was incubated with the same concentrations of alprenolol [20].
  • A compound from another synthesis was shown be to effective in displacing specific [125I]iodocyanopindolol binding from neonatal rat cardiac myocyte membranes, with a dissociation constant of 13.8 nM, whereas native alprenolol had a dissociation constant of 1.3 nM [21].
  • Electrophysiological effects of alprenolol on depressed canine myocardium [4].
  • Fat cells from hypo- and hyperthyroid rats showed the same affinity (K = 1.4 X 10(10) M(-1) and binding capacity (N = 1.21 X 10(-13) mol/microgram DNA) toward alprenolol as those from normal animals [22].
