Adenosine receptors

Overview

« Hide More detailed introduction

Adenosine receptors (nomenclature as agreed by the NC-IUPHAR Subcommittee on Adenosine Receptors [19]) are activated by the endogenous ligand adenosine (potentially inosine also at A3 receptors). Crystal structures for the antagonist-bound and agonist-bound A2A adenosine receptors have been described [26,66].
