Characterization of octopamine-sensitive adenylate cyclase: elucidation of a class of potent and selective octopamine-2 receptor agonists with toxic effects in insects.

Abstract

Octopamine-2 receptors, associated with activation of adenylate cyclase, mediate a number of the important hormonal and neurotransmitter functions of octopamine in invertebrates. By utilizing the highly enriched octopamine-sensitive adenylate cyclase present in the firefly light organ, it has been possible to pharmacologically characterize octopamine-2… (More)
