ATP analogs substituted in the gamma-phosphorus (ATPgammaS, beta, gamma-imido-ATP, and beta,gamma-methylene-ATP) were used to probe the involvement of P2 receptors in the modulation of synaptic(More)
Both brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and adenosine influence neuronal plasticity. We now investigated how adenosine influences the action of BDNF on synaptic transmission in the CA1 area of(More)
The binding of the adenosine A2A receptor selective agonist 2-[4-(2-p-carboxyethyl) phenylamino]-5′-N-ethylcarboxamidoadenosine (CGS 21680) to the rat hippocampal and cerebral cortical membranes was(More)
Adenosine, a neuromodulator of the CNS, activates inhibitory-A1 receptors and facilitatory-A2A receptors; its synaptic levels are controlled by the activity of bi-directional equilibrative nucleoside(More)
