Receptors cyclic amp

receptors, cyclic AMP

cell surface proteins that bind cyclic AMP with high affinity and trigger intracellular changes which influence the behaviour of cells. The best characterised cyclic aMP receptors are those of the slime mold dictyostelium discoideum. The transcription regulator cyclic AMP receptor protein of prokaryotes is not included nor are the eukaryotic cytoplasmic cyclic AMP receptor proteins which are the regulatory subunits of cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinases.
