We have previously shown that mouse epidermal growth factor (mEGF) attenuates the increase in intracellular cAMP provoked by human choriogonadotropin (hCG) in MA-10 Leydig tumor cells (Ascoli, M., Euffa, J., and Segaloff, D. L. (1987) J. Biol. Chem. 262, 9196-9203). The studies presented herein were designed to investigate the mechanism(s) responsible for this phenomenon. We show that mEGF attenuates the increase in cAMP accumulation provoked by hCG primarily, if not entirely, by inhibiting adenylate cyclase activity. This phenomenon has some specificity for the agonist used, but it is not cell-specific. Thus, mEGF inhibited hCG-activated adenylate cyclase in MA-10 cells and in rat luteal cells but had no effect on the forskolin-activated enzyme in MA-10 cells or the isoproterenol-activated enzyme in rat luteal cells.
