Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Adrenergic receptors in rat brain microvessels were studied during ontogenesis. Microvessels were prepared by albumin floatation and glass bead filtration techniques from cortices of 10-, 20- and 90-day-old rats. The lower level of α1- α2- and β-receptor sites observed in early life may correlate with the lower capacity of cerebral vascular regulatory mechanism in this period.
