[The role of sulfhydryl groups in functioning of components of adenylate cyclase signal system in smooth muscles of the mollusk Anodonta cygnea (effect of N-ethylmaleimide and p-chloromercuribenzoic acid)].

The alkylating agent N-ethylameimide and the sulfhydryl group blocker p-chloromercuribenzoic acid (CPMA) inhibited in dose-dependent manner both basal activity of adenylyl cyclase (AC) and its activity stimulated by non-hormonal substances (forskolin, sodium fluoride, guanylilimidodiphosphate) in smooth muscles of the freshwater bivalve mollusk Anodonta… CONTINUE READING
