PACAP activated adenylate cyclase in human sweat glands. An ultracytochemical study

Abstract

The ultracytochemical localization of adenylate cyclase (AC) was studied after stimulation with pituitary adenylate cyclase activating peptide (PACAP) in human sweat glands. PACAP stimulated AC in both eccrine and apocrine glands. In the secretory cells, enzymatic activity was associated with membranes involved in the secretory mechanism. In both glands, the cells of the excretory duct and myoepithelial cells presented AC activity. These localizations of enzymatic activity suggest a role for PACAP in regulating glandular secretion.

PlumX Metrics

PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
