Samadi, , Jois, M. and Dunshea, F.R. (2000) Effect of a β-adrenergic agonist (BRL35135A) on growth and body composition of sheep. In: Proceedings of the Nutrition Society of Australia, V24, 77, 3 - 6 December, Fremantle, Western Australia
The effects of β1 and β2-adrenergic agonists on increasing skeletal muscle protein deposition and/or reducing fat deposition in animals have been well documented. Much less is known about the effects of atypical β3-agonists in growing animals. However, they appear to have high degree of selectively for stimulating thermogenesis and have been implicated as potential anti-obesity agents (1). The aim of this study was to examine the effect of chronic administration of a β3-agonist on growth and body composition of lambs.
