AMP Catabolism in Primary Rat Cardiomyocyte Cultures
The mechanisms operating to maintain an optimal adenine nucleotide pool in tissues are interrelated with the metabolism of AMP, This compound is the parent adenine nucleotide molecule to be produced, either de novo or by salvage. At the same time AMP is also the substrate for adenine nucleotide degradation to diffusible nucleosides and bases, which can efflux from the tissue (1, 2, 3, 4).
