Adenylyl Cyclases (AC) are a group of enzymes that convert adenosine-5'-triphosphate (ATP) into 3',5'-adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) and pyrophosphate. There are ten different mammalian isoforms of AC; nine are membrane-bound, which are all found in, but not limited to, excitable tissues such as neurons and muscle, and one soluble form (sAC), which is expressed predominantly in the testes.

Literature for Adenylyl Cyclases
Written by Jacob Ballon et al, this poster highlights key signaling pathways implicated in the development of schizophrenia, and the most promising strategies in novel drug development. Current research targets include cholinergic and glutamatergic signaling pathways, and the D2 receptor. Compounds available from Tocris are listed.Request copy | View all posters
