Hormone Receptors, Cyclic Nucleotides, and Control of Cell Function

  • Gerald D. Aurbach
  • Edward M. Brown


The general scope established with the first chapter in this series (Aurbach, 1976) is developed further in this chapter. Since the writing of that first chapter, considerable further progress has been made in identification by direct binding studies of receptors with novel ligands for β- adrenergic, α-adrenergic, and dopaminergic receptors. The latter are discussed here for the first time in this series. New knowledge has been gained concerning the biosynthesis of the ACTH precursor molecule, which, remarkably, has now been discovered to contain the opiate-receptor-active polypeptide endorphin as well. There is further understanding of the interrelationships at the receptor level of somatomedins (now renamed IGF-I and IGF-II, insulinlike growth factors), multiplication-stimulating activity (MSA), and proinsulin. The structures of these molecules, it is now recognized, share extensive amino acid sequence homologies and additional similarities in secondary structure.
