Effects of adenosine A1 receptor antagonism on lipogenesis and lipolysis in isolated rat adipocytes

Adenosine is secreted from adipocytes, binds to adenosine A1 receptor and modulates various functions of these cells. In the present study, the effects of an adenosine A1 receptor antagonist (DPCPX; 0.01, 0.1 and 1 μM) on lipogenesis, glucose transport, lipolysis and the antilipolytic action of insulin were tested in rat adipocytes. DPCPX had a very weak effect on lipogenesis and did not significa…
