Octopamine, which is considered as a false neurotransmitter, fully stimulated lipolysis only in ?3 responders or hyporesponders and was inefficient in human and guinea pig adipocytes. Galitzky J., Carp?n? C., Lafontan M. & Berlan M. 1993. Stimulation sp?cifique de r?cepteurs ?3- adr?nergiques du tissu adipeux par l’octopamine. C.R. Acad. Sci. 316: 519-523. Thought some might be interested in this study.Looks like someone didnt do research before launching a product.
. It has been shown that octopamine can stimulate alpha(2)-adrenoceptors (ARs) in Chinese hamster ovary cells transfected with human alpha(2)-ARs.Comp Biochem Physiol C Toxicol Pharmacol 2000 Jan;125(1):33-44
