Table 3 Baseline values of ATP, ADP, CD39 and CD73 presented as median and range, and average percentage change (and range) after clamping

From: Hypoxia-induced inflammation and purinergic signaling in cross clamping the human aorta

  Aorta baseline Average change P value* Femoral baseline Average change P value*
ATP (nmol/L) 3276 (1582–4476) −6 % (−30 to 50 %) NS 4336 (2731–5187) −21 % (−42 to 21 %) NS
ADP (nmol/L) 2790 (1243–3317) −9 % (−45 to 29 %) NS 1755 (1219–3944) −4 % (−56 to 71 %) NS
CD39 (nmol/mL/h) 20.5 (13–27) −43 % (−2 to −63 %) 0.047 15 (8–20) −6 % (−24 to 13 %) NS
CD73 (nmol/mL/h) 243 (184–251) −46 % (−21 to −55 %) 0.016 303 (224–549) −25 % (−16 to −30 %) 0.016
