6) They demonstrated that injection of a specific ecto-5'NT inhibitor, [alpha],[beta]-methylene ADP, suppressed the antiinflammatory properties of methotrexate in a murine air pouch model of inflammation, indicating that adenosine released from methotrexate treatment is derived from adenine nucleotides converted extracellularly to adenosine.

This phenomenon could be linked to the finding that significant depletion of ATP and adenine nucleotides (which may indicate that they had been metabolized to urate) occurred only in rat liver slices incubated in a medium containing both glycerol and ethanol (9).
