Pre-incubating midgut tissues with dibutyryl cyclic GMP elicited a 74% increase (586 pg 20-HE formed/min/mg tissue, n = 9) in E20-M activity compared to untreated or dibutyryl cyclic AMP treated tissues (337 pg 20-HE formed/min/mg tissue, n = 9).
Protein kinase exists in an inactive form, which in turn activated by cyclic AMP. Epinephrine, a primary messenger acts by activating the adenyl cyclase system which catalyzes the synthesis of cyclic AMP from ATP.

We are currently probing the calcium dependent calmodulin regulation of KCBP by examining cell elongation and organelle motility while perfusing several compounds across elongating pollen tubes that alter calmodulin activity and that alter cytoplasmic calcium levels by affecting cyclic AMP regulation in the cell.
