3-6: Cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) pathway. After hormone binding, coupled G protein exchanges bound guanosine diphosphate (GDP) for guanosine triphosphate (GTP). Active GsaGTP diffuses in the membrane and binds to membrane-bound adenylate cyclase, stimulating it to produce cAMP. Binding of cAMP to the regulatory subunits (R) of protein kinase A releases the active catalytic (C) subunits, which mediate various cellular responses.
