1. We investigated the effects of pH elevation or depression on adenosine output from buffer-perfused rat gracilis muscle, and kinetic properties of adenosine-forming enzymes, 5'-nucleotidase (5'N) and non-specific phosphatase (PT), and adenosine-removing enzymes, adenosine kinase (AK) and adenosine deaminase (AD), in homogenates of muscle. 2. Depression of… CONTINUE READING
