Scientific Background:Cyclic AMP (cAMP) is one of the most important “second messengers” involved as a modulator of physiological processes. A number of hormones are known to activate cAMP through the action of the enzyme Adenylate cyclase which converts ATP to cAMP. cAMP has been shown to be involved in the cardiovascular and nervous systems, immune mechanisms, cell growth and differentiation, and general metabolism.
