Data indicate that Adra1b is the functional subtype that mediates renal cortical vasoconstriction in control rats; high fructose feeding [inducing hyperinsulinemia] influences functionality of Adra1b in mediating renal cortical hemodynamic changes.

Irrespective of dietary sodium content, in Wistar-Kyoto rats, alpha(1A)- and alpha(1D)-subtypes are the major alpha(1)-adrenoceptors in renal cortical vasculature. Alpha(1B)-adrenoceptors appear also to be involved in high dietary sodium rats.

Results show that expression of different adrenoceptor subtypes in the heart is regulated differently by various stressors, and suggest a protective role of beta(2)-, beta(3)-AR, and alpha(1B)-AR in the process of heart adaptation to chronic stress.
