Morphine was injected into the periaqueductal gray region of the rat and 8-phenyltheophylline, an adenosine receptor antagonist, was injected intrathecally 15 or 30 min later, to determine whether supraspinally-administered morphine activated descending mechanisms to release adenosine (or a nucleotide which...

Pretraining administration of morphine (5 mg/kg, intraperitonically) in a step-down passive avoidance task led to state-dependent learning with impaired retrieval on the test day that was dose-dependently restored by pretest administration of morphine (0.5, 1, 3, and 5 mg/kg). This...

Recent evidence suggests that theophylline, apart from bronchodilatation, derives its therapeutic activity in asthma from anti-inflammatory effects. Free oxygen radicals play important role in the perpetuation of inflammatory processes underlying bronchoconstriction and airway hyperresponsiveness in asthmatics. In our previous studies...

Acute liver injury is associated with renal insufficiency, whose mechanism may be related to activation of the hepatorenal reflex. We previously showed that intrahepatic adenosine is involved in activation of the hepatorenal reflex to restrict urine production in both healthy...

1. The effects of ATP, the stable ATP analogues alpha,beta-methylene ATP (alpha,beta-mATP), 2-methylthioATP (2meSATP) and adenosine tetraphosphate (ATP4), the pyrimidine nucleotide uridine 5'-triphosphate (UTP) and the alpha1-adrenoceptor agonist phenylephrine were examined on the isolated perfused uterine vasculature of dioestrous, oestradiol-treated...

ATP can differentially affect the micro- and macrovascular endothelial barrier. It has been shown that it can both increase and/or decrease macromolecule permeability of microvascular endothelial cells and microvessels, in vivo. We hypothesised that the barrier stabilising effect is mediated...

At sites of purinergic neurotransmission, synaptic ecto-ATPase is believed to limit the actions of ATP following its neural release. However, details of the modulation by this enzyme of the ATP-mediated conductance change and the possible mechanisms mediating this modulation remain...

Ischemia-reperfusion provokes barrier failure of the coronary microvasculature, leading to myocardial edema development that jeopardizes functional recovery of the heart during reperfusion. Here, we tested whether adenosine 5'-triphosphate (ATP), either exogenously applied or spontaneously released during reperfusion, protects the endothelial...

We prepared diet-induced hyperhomocysteinemia (hHcy) in adult male Wistar rats and investigated the effects of hHcy on the adenosinergic and adrenergic responses in vitro and in vivo. The responsiveness of right atria from hHcy rats to the negative chronotropic effects...

Chronic musculoskeletal pain involves connective tissue remodeling triggered by inflammatory mediators, such as bradykinin. Fibroblast cells signaling involve changes in intracellular Ca2+ ([Ca2+]i). ATP has been related to connective tissue mechanotransduction, remodeling and chronic inflammatory pain, via P2 purinoceptors activation....

We found that caffeine significantly inhibited epidermal growth factor (EGF)- and 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA)-induced cell transformation in the JB6 mouse epidermal cell line. The tumor promoter-induced cell transformation was also blocked by treatment with an adenosine A1 receptor antagonist, 8-phenyltheophylline (8-PTH)....

In dogs, only combined blockade of vasodilator pathways [via adenosine receptors, nitric oxide synthase (NOS) and ATP-sensitive K+ (KATP) channels] results in impairment of metabolic vasodilation, which suggests a redundancy design of coronary flow regulation. Conversely, in swine and humans...

Pressure-flow autoregulation, although weak, was seen in the hepatic artery (HA) of every cat that also showed dilation to infused adenosine. Several means of quantitating autoregulation are described and evaluated, and all indices showed that the selective adenosine antagonists, 8-phenyltheophylline...

Extracellular ATP stabilizes the endothelial barrier and inactivates the contractile machinery of endothelial cells. This inactivation relies on dephosphorylation of the regulatory myosin light chain (MLC) due to an activation of the MLC phosphatase (MLCP). To date, activation and function...

We previously demonstrated a role for voltage-dependent K(+) (K(V)) channels in coronary vasodilation elicited by myocardial metabolism and exogenous H(2)O(2), as responses were attenuated by the K(V) channel blocker 4-aminopyridine (4-AP). Here we tested the hypothesis that K(V) channels participate...

K(+)(ATP) channels are important metabolic regulators of coronary blood flow (CBF) that are activated in the setting of reduced levels of ATP or perfusion pressure. In the normal heart, blockade of K(+)(ATP) channels results in a approximately 20% reduction in...

In trout hepatocytes, hypotonic swelling is followed by a compensatory shrinkage called regulatory volume decrease (RVD). It has been postulated that extracellular ATP and other nucleotides may interact with type 2 receptors (P(2)) to modulate this response. In addition, specific...

Adenosine modulates the intestinal functions of secretion, motility, and immunity, yet little is known about the regulation of nutrient absorption. Therefore, we measured the carrier-mediated uptake of tracer D-[(14)C]glucose (2 microM) by everted sleeves of the mouse intestine after a...
