|Applications:||Plays an important role in energy transfer as ATP and ADP as well as in transduction as cAMP. It is also a neuromodulator that helps promote sleep and suppress arousal. Also regulates blood flow through vasodilation. Used as a medication to treat some forms of supraventricular tachycardia as an antiarrhythmic agent.|
