Sammanfattning : Brief episodes of ischemia and reperfusion render the myocardium more resistant to necrosis from a subsequent, otherwise lethal ischemic insult. This phenomenon is called ischemic preconditioning(IP). LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Renal arterioles represent the most important effecter site in the control of renal perfusion and filtration. Adenosine (Ado), angiotensin II (Ang II) and nitric oxide (NO) interact in modulating arteriolar tone. The present work investigates the mechanism of this interaction. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The kidneys play a vital role in the maintenance of extracellular fluid and electrolyte balance and blood pressure. Adenosine, acting through the adenosine A1-receptor (A1R), and nitric oxide have been implicated in several of the regulatory mechanisms in the kidney. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The nucleoside adenosine exerts a modulatory action in the central nervous system by activating G-protein coupled receptors. Four such receptors are cloned and pharmacologically characterized: A1, A2A, A2B and A3. Caffeine, the most widely consumed psychostimulant, acts as an adenosine receptor antagonist predominantly on the first two. LÄS MER
