Biosynthesis of Adrenal Catecholamines during Adaptation of Rats to Immobilization Stress

Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 33)

Abstract

The study of the reactions of the organism to chronic, long term, repeated stress, attains an extraordinary importance, mainly because nowadays civilisation is accompanied by new factors, to which the organism has to be adapted, i.e. crowds, traffic, noise, rush, human relations, etc. The sympatho-adrenal system is activated in the first place by stress and immediately secretes catecholamines — epinephrine and norepinephrine« Up to the present time we have little information about the function or reaction of these very active biological compounds during adaptation to daily repeated stress.
