Suramin-sensitive suppression of paired-pulse inhibition by adenine nucleotides in rat hippocampal slices.

In order to assess the possible presence of presynaptic P2 receptors for nucleotides in the hippocampus, adenosine triphosphate and betagamma-methyleneATP have been examined on paired-pulse inhibition in rat hippocampal slices. Both compounds reproduced the effects of adenosine and reduced the amount of paired-pulse inhibition at an interpulse interval of… CONTINUE READING
