Background: A2B is a receptor for adenosine. A2B receptor is upregulated during intestinal inflammation and mediates key events such as chloride, IL-6 and fibronectin secretion in intestinal epithelial cells. A2B receptor antagonists may have important clinical value in the treatment of inflammatory diseases, such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), as well as inflammatory bowel disease.
Application: Functional assays
