Niguldipine discriminates between alpha 1-adrenoceptor-mediated second messenger responses in rat cerebral cortex slices.

The effect of both isomers of niguldipine, a highly selective alpha 1-adrenoceptor antagonist and dihydropyridine calcium channel blocker, on noradrenaline-stimulated inositol phosphate (IP) accumulation and adenosine 3':5'-cyclic monophosphate (cyclic AMP) potentiation was examined. Both isomers inhibited noradrenaline-stimulated IP accumulation. (+)-Niguldipine was 100 fold more potent than (-)-niguldipine. Potentiation of beta-adrenoceptor-stimulated cyclic AMP by noradrenaline was only partially inhibited by both isomers. The dihydropyridine, israpidine, did not inhibit either second messenger response. This study provides further evidence that the alpha 1-adrenoceptors mediating IP accumulation and cyclic AMP potentiation are different.[1]
