- Pathway Narrative:
AC converts ATP to cyclic AMP, which acts as a secondary messenger, by cleavage of pyrophosphate.
- Small Molecule
- Acts as a secondary radio signal within the cell
- Interacts with:
- AC, PKA, PKA Catalytic
- Interesting Facts:
The fact that cAMP is a small molecule makes it a very effective second messenger because it can rapidly move through the cell than any large protein messenger.
