SummaryThe effect of adenosine upon pial resistance vessels was studied using local microapplication from the perivascular side and measurement of vascular diameter. Concentration-response curves revealed a concentration-dependent dilatatory effect of adenosine between 10−7 and 10−3 M. The degree of dilatation was independent of initial vessel size (47–260 μ). The dilatations due to adenosine could be reduced by theophylline in a reversible competitive antagonism. Concentration-response curves… Expand
