Previous studies have shown a cAMP/protein kinase A-dependent neuroprotective effect of adenosine on glutamate or re-feeding-induced apoptosis in chick retina neuronal cultures. In the present work, we have studied the effect of adenosine on the survival of retinal progenitor cells. Cultures obtained from 6-day-old (E6) or from 8-day-old (E8) chick embryos were challenged 2 h (C0) or 1 day (C1) after seeding and analyzed after 3-4 days in vitro. Surprisingly, treatment with the selective A2a… CONTINUE READING
