Example text

I Cyclic AMP actions are reversed by hydrolysis of cyclic AMP by phosphodiesterase to 5' AMP, and protein phosphorylation is reversed by the action of phosphatases. Phosphodiesterases are regulated and are a frequent target of inhibitor drugs such as methylxanthines, which prolong cyclic AMP action by blocking its degradation. Phosphatases are regulated by phosphatase-inhibitor proteins, which are fine-tuned by phosphorylation of these molecules. Cyclic GMP acts by binding to the regulatory domain of cyclic GMPdependent protein kinase.

This renders the cell refractory to the initial hormone concentration, but if the need is great enough, hormone concentrations can increase ten-fold and fully activate the residual 10% of receptors to give full biologic responses. Such a response system provides high initial sensitivity, buffering via downregulation against excessive hormone responses, but reserve that can operate when the signal strength is strong enough. Receptors are mobile in the plane of the membrane. Ligand binding not only transduces signals but also induces downregulation by removing receptors from the cell surface.

Is r e p DAG acts as a second messenger by binding to protein kinase C to activate this important regulatory enzyme. Protein kinase C also requires Ca2+ for activation, so both second messengers of this pathway cooperate to increase the activity of this enzyme. The components of this second messenger system are diverse and complex. There are several isoenzyme forms of protein kinase C and of phosphoinositidase. Although one isoenzyme form of phosphoinositidase is activated via receptor-coupled G proteins, another is activated by binding to receptor tyrosine kinases and undergoing tyrosine phosphorylation.
