Beta-adrenergic agonists, adenosine and prostaglandin E1 increased the level of adenosine 3':5'-monophosphate (cAMP) in glial cultures prepared from rat cerebral cortical tissue. In addition to these physiological effectors, cholera toxin also increased cAMP levels in these cultures. The accumulation of cAMP in response to each of these agen-s, including cholera toxin, was partially blocked (50--80%) by simultaneous alpha-adrenergic receptor stimulation. Basal levels of cAMP were not affected… CONTINUE READING
