Adenosine acts as an important protector of ischemic myocardium through coronary vasodilation and the depression of cardiac contractility. The protective effect of adenosine may partly relate to the cardiac hormone atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP). The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of adenosine and the adenosine receptor subtype on atrial hemodynamics and ANP release using isolated perfused beating rat atria. Adenosine, a nonselective adenosine receptor agonist… CONTINUE READING
