5.2 The pharmaceutical background

The existence of alpha receptors had been known for many years, and the obvious approach of trying to block these receptors, and hence prevent the noradrenaline from binding, had already been tried by many research groups. A number of compounds with alpha-blocking activity had been identified, including one called prazosin (2) discovered by Pfizer at their US research laboratories in Groton. Substances such as prazosin which block agonist action are called antagonists.

The versatility of mammals is a central theme of the ‘Studying mammals’ series of units, but surely no environment has tested that versatility as much as the rivers and oceans of the world. Mammals are essentially a terrestrial group of animals, but three major groups have independently adopted an aquatic way of life. In moving to the water, aquatic mammals have had to survive, feed and reproduce using a set of biological characteristics that evolved in association with life on land. This

1.2 Chemical elements

Atoms of the same atomic number behave virtually identically in chemical reactions. They are therefore given the same chemical name and chemical symbol. For example, the atom of atomic number 6, which is shown in Figure 1, is a carbon atom, whose symbol is C. All materials are made of atoms, but there is a special class of substan
