alpha(2A)-Adrenoceptor-activation inhibits NA and ATP release from renal sympathetic nerves. Pressor responses to RNS at higher stimulation frequencies (>2 Hz) are mediated by NA. At lower frequencies neuronally released ATP seems to be the predominant transmitter mediating renovascular resistance.
