Example text

As cyclic AMP concentrations fall, bound cyclic AMP separates from the regulatory subunits, which then reassociate with the catalytic subunits, restoring basal activity. The regulatory regions of many genes contain a cyclic AMP response element (CRE) analogous to the HREs that bind nuclear hormone receptors, as discussed above. One or more forms of CRE binding proteins (CREBs) are found in PO 4 enzymes R R C C cAMP cAMP R cAMP R cAMP C ion channels C PO 4 PO4 CREB CREB PO4 cAMP NH2 cAMP Na+ Ca++ Na+ Ca++ COOH Figure 18 Effects of cyclic AMP.

Based on the nucleotide sequence and organization of their genes and the structure of their proteins, receptors—like other proteins—can be organized into families or superfamilies that presumably arose from the same ancient progenitor gene. Even for distantly related receptors the general features of signal transduction follow common broad outlines that are seen with families of molecules that receive and transduce signals in eukaryotic cells of species ranging from yeast to humans. HORMONAL ACTIONS MEDIATED INTRACELLULAR RECEPTORS BY The cholesterol derivatives (steroid hormones and vitamin D) are lipid soluble and are thought to enter cells by diffusion through the lipid bilayer of the plasma membrane.

GTPase activity of the alpha subunit is relatively slow.
