Evidence for an Adenosine Receptor in Human Tissues
Adenosine is an intermediate of the pathway of purine nucleotide degradation. Many biological properties of adenosine have been identified: It is toxic to mammalian and bacterial cells, and its presence is associated with inhibition of the immune response, coronary vasodilation, delayed neurotransmission, sedation, inhibition or stimulation of hormone secretion and changes in the metabolism of a number of tissues.1
