A histochemical demonstration of the Na++K+-ATPase activity in the thyroid and the effect of cyclic adenosine monophosphate (c-AMP)

  • Mileva Ivić
  • Lj. Klisić


With a suitable modification of the Farquhar and Palade technique the Na++K+-ATPase activity in guineapig thyroid is demonstrated. The addition of c-AMP (5×10−6 M or 1.5×10−5 M) to the incubation media produced an apparent intensification of the Na++K+-ATPase activity in the thyroid.
