A1 adenosine-receptor antagonists activate chloride efflux from cystic fibrosis cells.

A1 adenosine-receptor-antagonist drugs such as 8-cyclopentyl-1,3-dipropylxanthine (CPX) and xanthine amine congener (XAC) are found to activate the efflux of 36Cl- from CFPAC cells. These cells are a pancreatic adenocarcinoma cell line derived from a cystic fibrosis (CF) patient homozygous for the common mutation, deletion of Phe-508. The active… CONTINUE READING
