DESCRIPTION

Adenosine plays a variety of roles in metabolism. It is an important constituent of DNA and RNA, is the basis for metabolic energy usage via ATP and ADP, is critical for a wide range of functions through the mediation of cyclic AMP. Adenosine can act directly, via several types of adenosine receptors. It functions as a vasodilator, affects anti-inflammatory systems, regulates the Renin-Angiotensin system and affects the immune response. Adenosine is also involved in sleep-wake cycles, acting as a neuromodulator in the CNS. There are a wide range of potential pharmacological applications for drugs which affect adenosine related systems in the body. AkrivisBio’s Adenosine Assay is a simple sensitive way to measure adenosine levels in a wide variety of biological samples with a sensitivity in the low picomole range.
