Uptake of adenosine by isolated bovine cortex microvessels


The uptake of adenosine is studied in microvessels isolated from a bovine cortex. TheK M value for adenosine uptake is 1.92 μM and theV max is 1.93 picomole/mg protein/10 min. This high affinity uptake system is very sensitive to inhibition by dipyridamole and papaverine. The uptake of adenosine by microvessels is also inhibited by CuCl2 and by high… (More)
