Abstract

This chapter outlines procedures for the expression of mammalian membrane-bound adenylyl cyclases (AC) in Sf9 cells and subsequent in vitro methods for assessing the activity of these cyclases. Membrane preparations derived from this overexpression system provide homogeneous sources of mammalian AC because AC that are endogenously expressed in Sf9 cells contribute low amounts of activity relative to the overexpressed enzyme. These approaches are applicable to all nine isoforms of mammalian membrane-bound AC isoforms.
