You measure the number of 1AR receptors on the surface of a resting cardiomyocyte and find that there are 20,000 receptors per cell.

Description


You measure the number of β1AR receptors on the surface of a resting cardiomyocyte and find that there are 20,000 receptors per cell. When you treat the cells with epinephrine for a sustained period of time, you measure the rate of receptor internalization and find that it is 3 times faster than in the resting state. Assuming that the cell has not changed the rate at which it produces new receptors and that all internalized receptors are degraded, what is the steady state number of receptors on a stimulated cell?
