Purinergic agonist induction of metallothionein.

Abstract

Metallothionein (MT) protein is readily induced in vivo in rat liver by adenosine and adenosine agonists (2-chloroadenosine, 5-(N-ethyl) carboxamido adenosine, and 5-chloro-5-deoxyadenosine). These presumably operate via AMP/adenosine receptors of the P1 (A2) type, which use the cAMP pathway. ATP was ineffective as an inducer for MT. 2-Chloroadenosine was… (More)
