Abstract

We investigated the effects of chronic administration of bopindolol in the heart of spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) The values of Kd and Bmax of α<SUB>1</SUB> and β-adrenoceptors in the heart of SHR were calculated by Scatchard analysis used <SUP>3</SUP>H-prazosin and <SUP>3</SUP>H-CGP 12177 binding. In addition, their blood pressure was also determined and these effects of bopindolol were compared with those of other β-blockers. SHR were given bopindolol (1 mg/kg and 3 mg/kg), atenolol (50 mg/kg), propranolol (60 mg/kg) in drinking water during 12 weeks. The systolic blood pressure of SHR was lowered by chronic administration of bopindolol, dose-dependently observed. The chronic administration of bopindolol (3 mg/kg) to SHRs increased the Kd and Bmax values of the a lx-adrenoceptors (high affinity binding sites for <SUP>3</SUP>H-prazosin). On the other hand, the administration of bopindolol (1 mg/kg and 3 mg/kg) decreased the Bmax values of the β-adrenoceptor. These findings suggest that chronic administration of bopindolol had a beneficial effect on the blood pressure and had a dose-dependent effect on the α<SUB>1</SUB>- and β-adrenoceptors in the heart. These effects of bopindolol maybe involved in the inhibition of the development of hypertension.
