International Union of Pharmacology. XXV. Nomenclature and classification of adenosine receptors.
Four adenosine receptors have been cloned and characterized from several mammalian species. The receptors are named adenosine A(1), A(2A), A(2B), and A(3). The A(2A) and A(2B) receptors preferablyExpand

Nomenclature and classification of purinoceptors.
“Receptors recognize a distinct chemical entity and translate information from that entity into a form that the cell can read to alter its state” (Kenakin et al., 1992). Even though the receptors areExpand

Structure of an Agonist-Bound Human A2A Adenosine Receptor
Changes associated with conformationally selective agonist binding shed light on G protein–coupled receptor activation. Activation of G protein–coupled receptors upon agonist binding is a criticalExpand

UDP acting at P2Y6 receptors is a mediator of microglial phagocytosis
Microglia, brain immune cells, engage in the clearance of dead cells or dangerous debris, which is crucial to the maintenance of brain functions. When a neighbouring cell is injured, microglia moveExpand

Characterization of the UDP-glucose receptor (re-named here the P2Y14 receptor) adds diversity to the P2Y receptor family.
The cloning of a human G-protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) that specifically responds to UDP-glucose and related sugar-nucleotides has been reported recently. This receptor has important structuralExpand

Hematoxylin and eosin staining of tissue and cell sections.
INTRODUCTIONHematoxylin and eosin (H&E) stains have been used for at least a century and are still essential for recognizing various tissue types and the morphologic changes that form the basis ofExpand
