Evidence of reversibility of age related decrease in human lymphocyte adenylate cyclase activity


, : Evidence of reversibility of age related decrease in human lymphocyte adenylate cyclase activity. Biochemical & Biophysical Research Communications 99(3): 1028-1034

Age-related loss of adenylate cyclase responsiveness to guanyl nucleotide was demonstrated in lymphocytes freshly isolated from human subjects. Enzyme activity of cells from young (< 40 yr) and elderly (> 65 yr) subjects were markedly sensitive to inhibition by non-ionic detergents. When enzyme activity in the presence of guanyl nucleotide and low concentrations of Triton X-100 was determined in a mixture of cells from the young and aged donors, the activity was 40 .+-. 17% (mean .+-. SD) greater than anticipated from the activity of the cells of the 2 age groups assayed separately. The detergent range which facilitated the enhanced enzyme activity was too low to extract the catalytic subunit of adenylate cyclase from the cells. Changes distal to receptors apparently contribute to diminished responsiveness of lymphocyte adenylate cyclase as a function of age. These age-related changes may be partially reversible by reconstitution with factors from cells from younger subjects.

Evidence that adenylate cyclase is the limiting component for receptor-mediated stimulation of adenylate cyclase activity. Stable cell lines, derived from NG108-15 cells and transfected to express both the beta 2-adrenoceptor and adenylate cyclase type II, were produced and examined. The absence of adenylate cyclase type II in the parental cells and its presence in th...

This study determined whether reduced sensitivity to catecholamines in aged myocytes resulted from deficits in the beta-adrenergic receptor (beta-AR) signaling pathway. Contractions and intracellular Ca(2+) were measured simultaneously in field-st...

Clones of neuroblastoma x glioma hybrid, NH108-15, cells expressing differing levels of the human beta 2 adrenoceptor were isolated. Two clones were examined in detail, beta N22 which expressed some 4000 fmol/mg of membrane protein and clone beta...
