1. Isolated aortic rings from the garter snake (Thamnophis sirtalis parietalis) were investigated in order to identify and classify responses to adenosine and adenosine 5'-triphosphate (ATP) and their analogues as part of a comparative study of vertebrate purinoceptors. 2. Adenosine, D-5'-(N-ethylcarboxamide) adenosine (NECA), R- and S-N6-(2-phenylisopropyl) adenosine (R- and S-PIA) and 2-chloroadenosine (2-CA) all concentration-dependently relaxed aorta preconstricted with noradrenaline (NA… CONTINUE READING
