..These results suggest that alpha(1B)-adrenoceptors do not mediate sympathetic mydriasis in rats, and that the alpha(1A)-adrenoceptor is the exclusive subtype mediating mydriatic responses in this species. ..

..Unlike alpha(2)-adrenoceptors, 5-HT(1A) receptors in the CNS do not mediate reflex mydriasis evoked by sciatic nerve stimulation. ..
