The release and metabolism of adenosine was examined using rat fat cells in which the nucleotide pool has been labeled by incubation with radioactive adenine. The accumulation of adenosine in the medium was near maximal at the start of the incubation and increased only slightly thereafter. Adenosine was rapidly deaminated to inosine and subsequently… (More)
