In the absence of adequate donor molecules, the interconvertible proteins would be converted completely to the unmodified forms by the actions of phosphatases.

2)-(4)], this system is well designed to adapt the adenylate cyclase responsiveness to the cell requirements through the modulation of the number of available receptors. This phenomenon, generally termed up-regulation or down-regulation, has been widely observed. 8 Hormone Modulation of Intracellular cAMP Concentration: Coupling between cAMP Synthesis and Degradation An increase in adenylate cyclase activity gives rise to an accumulation of cAMP. The cAMP concentration will be stationary when the degradaE3j.
