OBJECTIVE To quantify extracellular adenosine triphosphate (ATP) levels in human platelet-poor plasma as a potential source of synovial fluid ATP, and to determine variables affecting these levels. METHODS ATP was measured by the specific luciferase method; platelet beta thromboglobulin was determined by radioimmunoassay. The effects of fasting, feeding, venipuncture, and muscular exercise were determined by serial venipuncture in healthy subjects. Diurnal variation was determined by serial… CONTINUE READING
