Adenyl cyclase activity of mouse liver membranes after incubation with endotoxin and epinephrine

  • Mildred A. Donlon

Adenyl cyclase activity in isolated mouse liver cell membranes was stimulated two-fold by endotoxin. Furthermore, endotoxin inhibited epinephrine induction of adenyl cyclase activity, apparently through interruption of the phospholipid moiety of the enzyme complex.
