The ability of adenosine agonists to modulate the electrically evoked release of acetylcholine (ACh) from [3H]choline preloaded guinea-pig superior cervical ganglia (SCG) was investigated. The adenosine A1-receptor selective agonist N6-cyclohexyladenosine (CHA) and 2-chloroadenosine (2-CADO) inhibited the evoked transmitter release, the effect being reversed by the A1-receptor selective antagonist 8-cyclopentyl-1,3-dipropylxanthine (DPCPX), and by sulmazole (SUL), which blocks both the A1-receptor and the adenylate cyclase inhibitory regulator Gi. In whole ganglia, CHA decreased both the basal and the forskolin (FSK)-stimulated cyclic AMP synthesis. The latter effect was again prevented by the A1 antagonist DPCPX.

Abstract

The ability of adenosine agonists to modulate the electrically evoked release of acetylcholine (ACh) from [3H]choline preloaded guinea-pig superior cervical ganglia (SCG) was investigated. The adenosine A1-receptor selective agonist N6-cyclohexyladenosine (CHA) and 2-chloroadenosine (2-CADO) inhibited the evoked transmitter release, the effect being reversed by the A1-receptor selective antagonist 8-cyclopentyl-1,3-dipropylxanthine (DPCPX), and by sulmazole (SUL), which blocks both the A1-receptor and the adenylate cyclase inhibitory regulator Gi. In whole ganglia, CHA decreased both the basal and the forskolin (FSK)-stimulated cyclic AMP synthesis. The latter effect was again prevented by the A1 antagonist DPCPX. These results are compatible with the existence, in the guinea-pig SCG, of adenosine A1-receptors, part of which are located on the presynaptic nerve terminals mediating an inhibition of ACh release.
