Ischaemic Preconditioning and Postconditioning do not Affect Adenosine A1 and A2A Receptor Sensitivity


To the Editor: Endogenous adenosine is an important mediator of ischaemic preconditioning and postconditioning. The protective effect of ischaemic preconditioning is dependent on activation of adenosine A1 receptors in the first few minutes of reperfusion [1]. In contrast, the infarct size-limiting effect of ischaemic postconditioning is mediated by the… (More)
