Abstract

1. The presence of an octopamine-stimulated adenylate cyclase is shown in homogenates of the cerebral ganglion of the locust Schistocerca americana gregaria and the synganglion of the tick Boophilus microplus. 2. A detailed study of the pharmacology of the activation of the enzyme of the two species is reported and compared with the pharmacology of octopamine receptors in other invertebrate preparations.
