Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Negative control on the thyroid cyclic AMP system has been studied. The increase of cyclic AMP levels induced by TSH in dog thyroid slices and its consequent secretion were inhibited by norepinephrine. This effect was different from the previously described activation of cyclic AMP disposal by acetylcholine: it was not calcium-dependent, was observed in the presence of isobutyl methylxanthine and was not inhibited by atropine. The inhibitory action of norepinephrine was abolished by phentolamine but not by L-propranolol. Clonidine and epinephrine also markedly inhibited the elevation of cyclic AMP levels, but phenylephrine did not. The inhibitory effect of norepinephrine and clonidine was abolished by yohimbine but not by prazosin. These results suggest that the effect of adrenergic agents on dog thyroid follicular cells is mediated by alpha 2-receptors. Similar results were obtained on dog thyroid adenylate cyclase activity: norepinephrine diminished the activation of adenylate cyclase induced by TSH, in a sodium-dependent process. This inhibition was abolished by phentolamine and yohimbine, but not by L-propranolol and and prazosin. This shows that the negative alpha 2-adrenergic effect bears directly on adenylate cyclase.
