Possible Interaction: Adrenergic Alpha-Agonists and Calcium Supplement

Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Stimulation of these cells with alpha-agonists produced a transient rise in the free cytosolic calcium (Ca(++)) accompanied by enhanced binding to soluble Fg, and these effects were prevented by specific alphaAR antagonists.

In view of the concept that Ca++ is involved in the glycogenolytic effect of alpha-adrenergic agonist and vasopressin, the fact that elcatonin did not influence the action of these agents suggests that Ca++ fluxes are not involved in the elcatonin effect on liver.

We conclude that the alpha-adrenergic agonists directly influence the availability of calcium ions needed for the transmitter release, and that this effect is brought about without altering the electrical properties (i.e. nerve conduction, action potential size, resting membrane potential of the nerves, etc.).
