Expression of P2X and P2Y purinoceptors in adult human astrocytes. RT-PCR assay with 40 amplification cycles detected bands of expected size for P2Y1R (A, 647 bp), P2Y2R (B, 638 bp) and P2X7R (C, 465 bp) in total RNA extracted from culture of adult human astrocytes. Photos are representative of results obtained using cells from 3 independent surgical cases.
