Course Description

Instructor: Flynn Warren

For decades scientists had tried to understand how epinephrine could have both dilation and constriction effects in various body organs. Ahlquist, in 1948, came up with a descriptive and demonstrable explanation involving two different receptors; alpha and beta that showed how epinephrine could have both effects. Some challenged this explanation until 1968 when propranolol became available, and the alpha and beta receptors system was widely accepted. Ahlquist died before he could receive the Nobel Prize presented to other scientists based on his work.
