Cyclic GMP and Cyclic AMP in Lymphocyte Metabolism and Proliferation

  • John W. Hadden

Two major questions concerning the role of cyclic adenosine 3′,5′-monophosphate (cyclic AMP) in lymphocyte metabolism and function have been focused upon in recent years:
  1. (1)

    What role does cyclic AMP play in mediating hormonal influences to modify lymphocyte proliferation and function?

  2. (2)

    Do mitogens initiate proliferation by using a second-messenger system like cyclic AMP?
