Chemical Information
DescriptionSelective A2 adenosine receptor agonist; potent coronary vasodilator; weak inhibitor of adenosine uptake by rat cerebral cortical synaptosomes; used as a vasodilator agent; is a potent anti-inflammatory agent, acting at its four G protein coupled receptors. Topical treatment of adenosine to foot wounds in diabetes mellitus has been shown in lab animals to drastically increase tissue repair and reconstruction. Topical administration of adenosine for use in wound healing deficiencies and diabetes mellitus in humans is currently under clinical investigation. Adenosine is a nucleoside comprised of adenine attached to a ribose (ribofuranose) moiety via a beta-N9-glycosidic bond. [HMDB]
