1 mg/kg body weight dose of propranolol, a blocking agent of the β-adrenergic receptors, was administered to anesthetized and unanesthetized dogs that were trained and tranquilized.-. Under these conditions the metabolic variations detected in plasma were the following: 1. 1) Decrease in the level of FFA 2. 2) Decrease in glycerol 3. 3) Increase in the level of glucose. The decrease of the glycerol and FFA concentrations seemed to indicate an antilipolytic effect of propranolol in the intact, sedated dog.-.
