Adenylate cyclase inhibition by hormones. The Mg2+ hypothesis.


In washed anterior pituitary membranes, there is enough GTP to occupy Ns and therefore to obtain activation of adenylate cyclase by vasointestinal peptide. GTP concentrations needed to obtain adenylate cyclase inhibition by dopamine (above 5 X 10- M) stimulate the adenylate cyclase. The dopamine effect is a blockade of this stimulation. We propose that at… (More)
