Endogenous adenosine modulates alpha 2- but not alpha 1-adrenergic constriction of coronary arterioles.


In the coronary circulation alpha-adrenergic constriction competes with metabolic vasodilation. Because adenosine is produced by the working myocardium and metabolic stimulation results in arteriolar dilation, we tested the hypothesis that coronary arteriolar alpha-adrenergic constriction is attenuated by the endogenous production of adenosine. To test this… (More)
