    NAD+ significantly enhances adenylate cyclase activity in crude cardiac membrane preparations. This increase is dose-dependent, does not occur in the presence of nicotinamide, ADP-ribose or NADP+, and can be effected by a 30 min pre-incubation period with NAD+. Time course studies are consistent with an enzymatically mediated modification that uses NAD+ as substrate. Furthermore, inhibition of the NAD+-mediated activation by arginine suggests that this modulation of cardiac adenylate cyclase is analogous to that catalyzed by endogenous ADP-ribosyl transferases.
