Abstract

The activity of the adenylate cyclase catalytic subunit is higher in Harvey and Kirsten Murine Sarcoma Viruses-infected thyroid epithelial cells than in uninfected control cells either in the presence of Mg2+ alone or following stimulation by Mn2+ or forskolin. The higher activity is associated with an increased cAMP cellular content. The Gpp(NH)p and F- anion are more effective positive modulators in the control than in the virus infected cells: these results exclude therefore that the ras p21 proteins can act as the G-protein alpha-subunit and suggest that they negatively interfere with the G-protein modulation of the adenylate cyclase system.
