Adenosine in vertebrate retina: Localization, receptor characterization, and function

  title={Adenosine in vertebrate retina: Localization, receptor characterization, and function},
  author={Christine Blazynski and M. Rosell Perez},
  journal={Cellular and Molecular Neurobiology},
1. The uptake of [3H] adenosine into specific populations of cells in the inner retina has been demonstrated. In mammalian retina, the exogenous adenosine that is transported into cells is phosphorylated, thereby maintaining a gradient for transport of the purine into the cell. 2. Endogenous stores of adenosine have been demonstrated by localization of cells that are labeled for adenosine-like immunoreactivity. In the rabbit retina, certain of these cells, the displaced cholinergic, GABAergic… CONTINUE READING
