Contractile effects of adenosine, coronary flow and perfusion pressure in murine myocardium


There is mixed evidence adenosine receptors (ARs) may enhance myocardial contractility, although this remains contentious. We assessed inotropic actions of adenosine (50 μM) and selective AR activation with 100 nM N 6-cyclohexyladenosine (CHA; A1AR agonist), 25 nM 2-[p-(2-carboxyethyl) phenethylamino]-5′-N-ethylcarboxamidoadenosine (CGS-21680; A2AAR agonist… (More)
