Adenosine induces dormancy in starfish blastulae.


External application of 50 micrograms ml-1 adenosine inhibits development of the starfish Asterina pectinifera at the 256-cell stage when all the embryonic cells differentiate to epithelial cells. Intracellular concentration of adenosine in the adenosine-treated embryo is 2.7 times higher than those of the normal embryo whereas the contents of ATP, ADP, AMP… (More)
