The present data show that selective A2 adenosine receptor antagonists tended to increase locomotor and rearing activities in mice confronted with a free exploratory test. These findings support the hypothesis that the behavioural effects of adenosine antagonists can be linked to their actions at adenosine A2 receptors. 
SCH 58261 and ZM 241385 differentially prevent the motor effects of CGS 21680 in mice: evidence for a functional 'atypical' adenosine A(2A) receptor.
TLDR
Both 'striatal-like'/'SCH 58261-sensitive' adenosine A(2A) receptors and 'ZM 241385-sensitive'/'atypical' CGS 21680 binding sites may mediate CGS 21780-induced motor effects.
Caffeine and a selective adenosine A2A receptor antagonist induce reward and sensitization behavior associated with increased phospho-Thr75-DARPP-32 in mice
TLDR
Caffeine-induced reinforcing effect and behavioral sensitization are mediated by antagonism at adenosine A2A receptor.
Effects of purine analogues on spontaneous alternation in mice
TLDR
The results indicate the ability of A1 but not A2 receptor activation to modify working memory deficits induced by scopolamine, but suggest that endogenous adenosine does not normally participate in working memory processes.
Effects of selective adenosine A1 and A2 receptor agonists and antagonists on local rates of energy metabolism in the rat brain.
TLDR
The metabolic effects of the adenosine A2 receptor agonist and antagonist were consistent with the known involvement of that type of receptor in the control of locomotion and its effects on neuronal firing in the hippocampus and cerebral cortex and in the cochlear nucleus.
Adenosine physiology and pharmacology: how about A2 receptors?
TLDR
Evidence that adenosine A2 receptor properties may prove useful in future drug development, and selective manipulation of receptor-associated biologic effects might be relevant in the treatment of various disorders, are supported.
Combination of adenosine A1 and A2A receptor blocking agents induces caffeine-like locomotor stimulation in mice
TLDR
It is hypothesised that the stimulatory effect of low doses of caffeine in C57BL/6J mice is due to concomitant blockade of both A(1) and A(2A) adenosine receptors.
Caffeine as a psychomotor stimulant: mechanism of action
TLDR
The present review focuses on the effects of caffeine on striatal signal transduction and on their involvement in caffeine-mediated motor stimulation.
Distribution, biochemistry and function of striatal adenosine A2A receptors
TLDR
Current knowledge on the distribution, biochemistry and function of striatal A2A receptors is summarized and new selective antibodies, antagonist radioligands and optimized in situ hybridization protocols are provided.
Adenosine A2A antagonism reverses levodopa‐induced motor alterations in hemiparkinsonian rats
TLDR
The results demonstrate that the adenosine A2A receptor antagonist CSC reverses but does not prevent levodopa‐induced motor alterations in parkinsonian rats, and suggest that the antagonism of adenosines A 2A receptors might confer clinical benefit to parkinsonia patients under levodOPA therapy suffering from motor complication syndrome.
Brain maturation of high-affinity adenosine A2 receptors and their coupling to G-proteins.
TLDR
The data show that the developmental properties of A2a receptors contrast with those of A1 receptors, and emphasize the role played by adenosine through its A2 receptors in the maturation of striatum-related cerebral pathways.
