1-O-Alkyl-2-O-acetyl-sn-glyceryl-3-phosphocholine (platelet activating factor) inhibits human platelet adenylate cyclase via the GTP-dependent mechanism. Inhibition of adenylate cyclase correlates with the stimulation of high affinity hormone-sensitive GTPase. The half-maximal effects of PAF on both enzymes are observed at concentrations about 10(-8) M. Phentolamine, an alpha-adrenergic antagonist, does not abolish the PAF-induced inhibition of adenylate cyclase. The obtained data suggest that PAF receptors are coupled with the GTP-binding inhibitory protein.

Adrenergic Receptors: Trafficking

Adrenergic receptor trafficking is an active physiological process where adrenergic receptors are relocated from one region of the cell to another or from one type of cell to another. Discover the latest research on adrenergic receptor trafficking here.
