Flow thresholds for extracellular purine catabolite elevation in cat focal ischemia.


Ischemic glutamate excitotoxicity may be counteracted by adenosine which appears extracellularly during ischemia as an intermediate purine catabolite and has the potential to modulate glutamate release and its receptor action. The present study was conducted to evaluate the flow threshold for purine catabolite accumulation in relation to that for glutamate… (More)
