Human in vivo research on the vascular effects of adenosine.


In situations of impending tissue danger, such as during ischaemia, the concentration of the endogenous purine nucleoside adenosine rapidly increases. Subsequent stimulation of G-protein coupled adenosine receptors induces several cardiovascular effects, such as vasodilation, inhibition of inflammation, modulation of sympathetic nervous system activity, and… (More)
