The distribution of adenosine A1 receptors and 5'-nucleotidase in the brain of some commonly used experimental animals.

The distribution of adenosine A1 receptors was studied quantitatively in the brain of the rat, mouse, guinea-pig and cat, using in vitro autoradiography with [3H]N6-cyclohexyladenosine as ligand. Preliminary binding studies in brain sections from the guinea-pig and cat gave results similar to previous data from the rat and showed that the binding site had… CONTINUE READING
