HEK cell line expressing A2A Receptor were treated with CGS in presence or absence of ZM241385 for 30 minutes and level of cAMP was measured.
Works perfectly on my CD4 T cells proliferation assay, when detected by CFSE. It inhibited the proliferation of activated CD4 cells in dose-dependent manner.
