Eukaryotic cells respond to a wide range of extracellular signals such as growth factors, hormones, and neurotransmitters through the generation of intracellular second messengers. One of the most studied second messenger, cyclic adenosine 3′–5′-monophosphate (cAMP), regulates many cellular events, including secretion, differentiation, migration, and apoptosis. cAMP is produced from adenosine triphosphate (ATP) by adenylyl cyclase (AC) in response to...
