The adenosine A(1) receptor is involved in spinal cord antinociception. As its role at supraspinal sites is not well known, we studied the systemic effects of its agonist N-cyclopentyl-adenosine (CPA) in single motor units from adult-spinalized, intact and sham-spinalized rats. CPA was not effective after spinalization, but it was very effective in intact(More)
AIMS We previously observed that the adenosine A1 receptor agonist N6-cyclopentyladenosine (CPA) is a very effective antinociceptive agent on intact but not on spinalized adult rats with inflammation. Since a close connection between opioid and adenosine A1 receptors has been described, we studied a possible relationship between these systems in the spinal(More)
Antinociception induced by the adenosine A1 receptor agonist N6-cyclopentyladenosine (CPA) is linked to opioid receptors. We studied the subtype of receptors to which CPA action is related, as well as a possible enhancement of antinociception when CPA is coadministered with opioid receptor agonists. Spinal cord neuronal nociceptive responses of male Wistar(More)
The adenosine A1 receptor agonist N6-cyclopentyladenosine (CPA) is very effective in reducing wind-up in intact but not in spinalized adult rats with carrageenan-induced inflammation, suggesting an adenosine-mediated supraspinal modulation. Since wind-up is a spinal cord mediated phenomenon but highly influenced by descending modulatory systems, especially(More)
