Preeclampsia is characterised by an abnormal vascular response to placentation and is associated with increased systemic vascular resistance and endothelial cell dysfunction. This study investigated the mRNA and protein expression of the beta(2) and beta(3)-adrenoceptors (beta-ARs) in placenta, and umbilical arteries, from preeclamptic and normotensive patients, to determine if the presence of preeclampsia altered the expression of either receptor.
