    ..Our results provide the first evidence that v-Myb directly regulates a gene encoding a membrane receptor and establish a link between Myb function and adenosine receptor signaling. ..

    ..Taken together, our data suggest that the expression of the A2B adenosine receptor gene in myelomonocytic cells is controlled by multiple cell type-specific cis-acting sequences located upstream and within the intron of the gene. ..

    ..We show that the promoter region of the chicken adenosine receptor 2B gene (Adora2B), a known Myb-target gene, acts as a DNA replication origin...

    Adenosine receptors denoted by A1 , A2A , A2B , and A3 and encoded by ADORA1, ADORA2A, ADORA2B, and ADORA3 genes, respectively, are adenosine-activated G-protein-coupled receptors that play an important role in obesity and type 2 ..
