General description

Trimethylated xanthine that acts as a potent central nervous system stimulant. A nonselective phosphodiesterase inhibitor. At higher doses, produces tachycardia and interferes with the uptake and storage of Ca2+ by the sarcoplasmic reticulum in skeletal muscle. Prevents apoptosis and cell cycle effects induced by camptothecin and topotecan in HL-60 cells.
