Adrenergic Regulation of Protein Synthesis in Rat Submandibular Salivary Gland Cells
Archives of Oral Biology
Epinephrine, a mixed α- and β-adrenergic agonist, modulated new protein synthesis in dispersed rat submandibular cells. Both adrenoreceptors separately could increase protein synthesis after cells were exposed to [14C]-leucine for 10 min and then with 1 mM unlabelled leucine for 10–30 min. The extent of response was dependent on the concentration of epinephrine to which cells were exposed. Alteration in the sequence of exposure of cells to tracer and agonist changed the direction of agonist response.
