A method for preparing human platelet membranes with high adenylate cyclase activity is described. Using these membranes, epinephrine and GTP individually are noted to inhibit adenylate cyclase slightly. When present together, epinephrine and GTP act synergistically to cause a 50% inhibition of basal activity. The epinephrine effect is an alpha-adrenergic process as it is reversed by phentolamine but not propranolol. The quasi-irreversible activation of adenylate cyclase by Gpp(NH)p is time, concentration, and Mg2+-dependent but is not altered by the presence of epinephrine. Adenylate cyclase activated by Gpp(NH)p, and extensively washed to remove unbound Gpp(NH)p, is inhibited by the subsequent addition of Gpp(NH)p, GTP, and epinephrine. This effect of epinephrine is also an alpha-adrenergic phenomenon. In contrast to epinephrine which inhibits the cyclase, PGE1 addition results in enzyme stimulation. PGE1 stimulation does not require GTP addition. PGE1 accelerates the rate of Gpp(NH)p-induced activation. Low GTP concentrations (less than 1 x 10(-6) M) enhance PGE1 stimulation while higher GTP concentrations cause inhibition. These observations suggest that human platelet adenylate cyclase possesses at least two guanine nucleotide sites, one which interacts with the alpha-receptor to result in enzyme inhibition and a second guanine nucleotide site which interacts with the PGE1 receptor and causes enzyme stimulation.
