Originally adenylate cyclase activity was found only in nucleated erythrocytes (1). Sheppard and Burghardt demonstrated its occurrence and its stimulation by catecholamines and NaF also in the cell membrane of mammalian erythrocytes (2). Gauger (3) concluded, that adenylate cyclase was confined mainly to the reticulocytes.
