    Notes: Abstract Binding properties of the subtypes of adenosine A2 receptors in membrane preparations and the effects of adenosine receptor ligands on cAMP accumulation in slices from the optic tectum of neonatal chicks have been investigated. [3H]2-[4-(2-p-carboxyethyl)phenylamino]-5'-N-ethylcarboxaminoadenosine (CGS 21680), a selective ligand for adenosine A2a receptors, did not bind to optic tectal membranes, as observed with rat striatal membranes. CGS 21680 also did not induce cyclic AMP accumulation in optic tectum slices. However, 5'-N-ethylcarboxamidoadenosine (NECA), 2-chloro-adenosine or adenosine induced a 2.5- to 3-fold increase on cyclic AMP accumulation in this preparation. [3H]NECA binds to fresh non-washed-membranes obtained from optic tectum of chicks, displaying one population of binding sites, which can be displaced by NECA, 8-phenyltheophylline, 2-chloro-adenosine, but is not affected by CGS 21680. The estimated KD value was 400.90 ± 80.50 nM and the Bmax was estimated to be 2.51 ± 0.54 pmol/mg protein. Guanine nucleotides, which modulate G-proteins activity intracellularly, are also involved in the inhibition of glutamate responses by acting extracellularly. Moreover, we have previously reported that guanine nucleotides potentiate, while glutamate inhibits, adenosine-induced cyclic AMP accumulation in slices from optic tectum of chicks. However, the guanine nucleotides, GMP or GppNHp and the metabotropic glutamate receptors agonist, 1S,3R-ACPD did not alter the [3H]NECA binding observed in fresh non-washed-membranes. Therefore, the adenosine A2 receptor found in the optic tectum must be the adenosine A2b receptor which is available only in fresh membrane preparations, and its not modulated by guanine nucleotides or glutamate analogs.
