Adenosine uptake was studied in the piglet isolated perfused lung by means of the single-circulation paired-tracer dilution technique. Adenosine was efficiently taken up from the pulmonary vascular bed, and the process was potently inhibited by dipyridamole. Following uptake, adenosine was incorporated into intracellular nucleotides, and at low perfusate concentrations, little or none of the incorporated radioactivity returned to the circulation. At higher concentrations, cellular uptake was… CONTINUE READING
