Reduced appetite for caffeine in adenosine A(2A) receptor knockout mice

Abstract : Adenosine A(2A) receptor knockout mice (A(2A)R KO) were compared to wild-type controls (A(2A)R WT) in a caffeine intake paradigm. When mice had ad libitum access to caffeine (0.3 g/l) and water in a two-bottle paradigm for 12 consecutive days, adenosine A(2A)R KO mice drank less caffeinated solution, demonstrating a reduced appetite for caffeine as compared to adenosine A(2A)R WT mice. These data reveal an important role for the adenosine A(2A) receptor in the appetitive properties of caffeine.
