Abstract

Book chapter explains how glucagon activates two distinct signal transduction systems in hepatocytes, which leads to the desensitization of G-protein-regulated adenylate cyclase, the phosphorylation and inactivation of Gi-2 and the phosphorylation and stimulation of a specific cyclic AMP phosphodiesterase.
