Effect of dibutyryl cyclic adenosine 5' monophosphate on protein synthesis in L5178Y cells after hyperthermia

Academic Article


  • Protein synthesis in the L5178Y mouse lymphoma cell line was stimulated after short-duration heat shock by the addition of dibutyryl cyclic AMP. The stimulation was concentration-dependent (range, 0.01-1.0 mM) and was enhanced by preincubation of the cells in the presence of the cyclic nucleotide before the heat shock. Actinomycin, which blocks the recovery of protein synthesis activity after heat shock, did not block the cyclic AMP stimulation.
