Persantine is a drug that is routinely used to determine blood flow to the heart in the diagnosis of coronary heart disease. Persantine causes an increase in the adenosine level in the blo...
The purpose of this study is to extend previous observations in animal models regarding the effects of adenosine in the release of cytokines to human subjects. We intend to accomplish this...
The aim of this study is to show whether rosuvastatin influences adenosine metabolism. Therefore we will determine whether rosuvasatin increases dipyridamole-induced vasodilation by increa...
The endogenous nucleoside adenosine can induce various cardiovascular and neurohumoral effects by stimulation of specific adenosine receptors. taken together these effects protect against ...
Unblinded, controlled, non-randomized, mechanistic study to determine whether physiological mechanisms underlying PVC are sensitive to adenosine. Twenty subjects undergoing clinically-indi...
The purinergic system has not been investigated in detail following ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury in the heart. In the present study we focus on both release and response to extracellular adenosin...
Adenosine is a well-characterized endogenous anticonvulsant and seizure terminator of the brain. Through a combination of adenosine receptor-dependent and -independent mechanisms, adenosine affects se...
Compressive loading promotes adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production and release by intervertebral disc (IVD) cells. Extracellular ATP can be rapidly hydrolyzed by ectonucleotidases. Adenosine, one of...
The adenosine A receptor (AAR) is one of four adenosine receptor subtypes belonging to the Class A family of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). Until recently, the AAR remained poorly characterised,...
A nucleoside that is composed of adenine and d-ribose. Adenosine or adenosine derivatives play many important biological roles in addition to being components of DNA and RNA. Adenosine itself is a neurotransmitter.
An enzyme that catalyzes the formation of ADP plus AMP from adenosine plus ATP. It can serve as a salvage mechanism for returning adenosine to nucleic acids. EC 188.8.131.52.
Adenosine 5'-(trihydrogen diphosphate). An adenine nucleotide containing two phosphate groups esterified to the sugar moiety at the 5'-position.
An adenine nucleotide containing three phosphate groups esterified to the sugar moiety. In addition to its crucial roles in metabolism adenosine triphosphate is a neurotransmitter.
A subclass of adenosine A2 receptors found in LEUKOCYTES, the SPLEEN, the THYMUS and a variety of other tissues. It is generally considered to be a receptor for ADENOSINE that couples to the GS, STIMULATORY G-PROTEIN.
