  1. Competition binding of different ethanolic Salvia officinalis extracts (highlighted in bold and italic: bold of fresh leaves, italic of dry stipes) at the adrenergic alpha 2A receptor, the muscarinic M3 receptor, and the human μ-opioid receptor. Data are the IC50 values of summary curves over 2 independent experiments performed in duplicate
