Catecholamine and guanine nucleotide activation of skeletal muscle adenylate cyclase.

Activation of adenylate cyclase by guanine nucleotide and catecholamines was examined in plasma membranes prepared from rabbit skeletal muscle. The GTP analog, 5'-guanylyl imidodiphosphate caused a time and temperature-dependent activation of the enzyme which was persistent, the Ka was 0.05 microM. 5'-Guanylyl imidodiphosphate binding to the membranes was… CONTINUE READING
