Using (3H)dihydroalprenolol, we demonstrated that the concentration of pulmonary beta adrenergic receptor binding sites was lower in guinea pigs showing a marked bronchoconstrictive response to histamine and in ovalbumin-treated guinea pigs. This result suggests that the changed concentration of the pulmonary beta receptors in an animal model of asthma could result from bronchoconstriction stress.
