Adenosine serves as a nucleotide. It also plays an important role in the regulation of blood flow to various organs through vasodilation. It is actively involved in biochemical processes, such as energy transfer as adenosine triphosphate and adenosine diphosphate. Further, it is used in medication specifically as an antiarrhythmic agent to treat a number of supraventricular tachycardia. It is used to promote thickening of hair for people with thinning hair.
