Functions of neuronal adenosine receptors


Endogenous adenosine in nervous tissue, a central link between energy metabolism and neuronal activity, varies according to behavioral state and (patho)physiological conditions; it may be the major sleep propensity substance. The functional consequences of activation of the four known adenosine receptors, A1, A2A, A2B and A3, are considered here. The… (More)
