The P2X7 ATP receptor is proposed to play a role in apoptosis. Functional expression of this receptor in human retinal cells in culture was investigated using the P2X7 agonist BzATP. Adenosine is a proposed neuromodulator in the retina. The effect of adenosine on BzATP-induced Ca2+ signalling was also investigated.
