Abstract Some beta (1)- and beta (2)-adrenoceptor-blocking agents, such as (-)-CGP 12177, cause cardiostimulant effects at concentrations considerably higher than those that antagonise the effects of catecholamines. The cardiostimulant effects of these non-conventional partial agonists are relatively resistant to blockade by (-)-propranolol and have been proposed to be mediated through putative beta (4)-adrenoceptors or through atypical states of either beta (1)- or beta (2)-adrenoceptors. We investigated the effects of (-)-CGP 12177 on sinoatrial rate and left atrial contractile force as well as the ventricular binding of (-)-[H-3]CGP 12177 in tissues from wild-type, beta (2)-adrenoceptor knockout and beta (1)/beta (2)-adrenoceptor double knockout mice. The cardiostimulant effects of (-)-CGP 12177 were present in wildtype and beta (2)-adrenoceptor knockout mice but were absent in beta (1)/beta (2)-adrenoceptor double knockout mice. Thus, the presence of beta (1)-adrenoceptors is obligatory for the cardiostimulant effects of (-)-CGP 12177. It appears therefore that an atypical state of the beta (1)-adrenoceptor contributes to the mediation of the cardiostimulant effects induced by non-conventional partial agonists. Ventricular beta (1)- and beta (2)-adrenoceptors, labelled in wild-type with a K(D)similar to0.5 nmol/l (similar to 16 fmol/mg protein), were absent in beta (1)/beta (2)-adrenoceptor double knockout mice. However, a high density binding site (similar to 154-391 fmol/mg protein) that did not saturate completely (K(D)similar to 80-200 nM) was labelled by (-)-[H-3]CGP 12177 in the three groups of mice, being distinct from beta (1)- and beta (2)-adrenoceptors, as well as from the site mediating the agonist effects of(-)-CGP 12177.
