Adenosine A3 Receptors

The adenosine A3 receptor is a member of the adenosine receptor group of G-protein-coupled receptors that also includes A1, A2A and A2B. They display high expression levels in the testes and mast cells of rats, with low expression levels in the thyroid, liver, kidney and heart.

The adenosine A3 receptor is a member of the adenosine receptor group of G-protein-coupled receptors that also includes A1, A2A and A2B. They display high expression levels in the testes and mast cells of rats, with low expression levels in the thyroid, liver, kidney, heart, intestine and most brain areas. Adenosine A3 receptors play a role in mast cell degranulation, coronary vasodilation and protection from reperfusion. The human A3 receptor gene is localized on chromosome 1 (1p21-p13).
