Flashcards in Ch 9 Intracellular Signaling Deck (15):
effector enzyme which synthesizes cAMP by converting ATP in G-proteins.
How does adenylate cyclase function as a coincidence detector?
AC1 adenylate cyclase is stimulated by neurotransmitters or by a raise in Ca2+. AC2 adenylate cyclases are made only if the Beta section is from an abundant G-protein source.
