Effects of NPY and isoproterenol on cAMP accumulation in rat renal cortical cells

cAMP Accumulation, pmol ⋅ mg protein−1 ⋅ min−1Pn
Control 75.7 ± 9.6 5
NPY (10−7 M) 116.4 ± 24.0 NS 5
Isoproterenol (10−5 M) 409.4 ± 73.2 * 5
NPY + isoproterenol 252.4 ± 50.9 1-160 5
  • Values are means ± SE. NPY, neuropeptide Y.

  • * P < 0.002 vs. control.

  • F1-160 P < 0.05 vs. isoproterenol andP < 0.05 vs. control. NS, not significant vs. control.
