Parathyroid hormone, which influences a spectrum of renal tubule transport processes, is thought to exert its actions via the intermediacy of cyclic AMP. Of interest to those concerned with glomerular function, several groups of workers (1–4) have found in rats and rabbits that glomeruli also possess an adenylate cyclase enzyme system which is sensitive to parathyroid hormone.
