    Effects of restraint stress on the daily rhythm of hydrolysis of adenine nucleotides in rat serum

    Adenosine 5-triphosphate (ATP) and its breakdown products ADP and adenosine can act as extracellular messengers in a range of biological processes. Extracellular adenine nucleotides are metabolized by a number...
