Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) is a cyclic nucleotide derived from guanosine triphosphate (GTP). cGMP acts as a second messenger much like cyclic AMP. Its most likely mechanism of action is activation of intracellular protein kinases in response to the binding of membrane-impermeable peptide hormones to the external cell surface. Guanylate cyclase (GC), catalyzes cGMP synthesis. This enzyme converts GTP to cGMP. In turn, membrane-bound GC is activated by peptide hormones such as the atrial natriuretic factor, while soluble GC is typically activated by nitric oxide to stimulate cGMP synthesis.show more
