Abstract:

To identify the effects of moderate hydrostatic pressure on receptor and effector elements involved in transmembrane signal transduction, we examined the A1 adenosine receptor - inhibitory G protein G - adenylylcyclase signal transduction complex. Our experiments were designed to identify and define at the molecular level pressure effects on system components in isolation and on the entire functional complex.
