Adenosine is an endogenously occurring purine nucleosides composed of a molecule of adenine attached to a ribose sugar molecule. It acts by hyperpolarisation of SA-node leading to depression of SA-node automatically and by prolongation of AV-conduction time which interrupts re-entry circuits and restores normal sinus rhythm. Adenosine has an main role in biochemical processes such as energy transfer as well as signal transduction. It also has neuromodulator and vasodilation properties.
