It is generally recognized that adrenergic renal vasoconstriction is dominantly produced by the activity of α-adrenoreceptors. However, the concerted effect of multiple adrenoreceptor stimulation may be necessary for the full expression of norepinephrine activity. This is in part related to the fact that α1 receptor stimulation probably is less effective as a single vasoconstrictor agent in the kidney than it is in the systemic circulation (55). Renal nerve stimulation also results in β receptor activation, which in turn stimulates renin and generates AII.
