The results show that dibutyryl cyclic AMP stimulates tyrosine hydroxylase activity in an adrenergic clone of mouse neuroblastoma. This effect of dibutyryl cyclic AMP seems in part to be independent of its ability to slow cell division. Sodium butyrate, however, seems to increase tyrosine hydroxylase activity by inhibiting cell division. Prostaglandin PGE1 which has been reported to increase intracellular levels of cyclic AMP in clones of mouse neuroblastoma did not affect tyrosine hydroxylase activity to the same extent as dibutyryl cyclic AMP.
