Abstract

The ability of a series of B16 melanoma clones to form experimental lung metastases in syngeneic mice has been shown to correlate positively with adenylate cyclase activity. (Sheppard et al, Int. J. Cancer 37 (1986) 713-722). To begin to identify the components of the adenylate cyclase complex that account for enhanced enzyme activity in highly metastatic tumor populations, cholate extracts containing the GTP-binding protein Gs from B16 melanoma clones of different metastatic capacities were reconstituted with membranes prepared from S49 cyc-, a variant lymphoma cell line that lacks Gs function. The results revealed that extracts from a highly metastatic B16 clone (F10-C23) reconstituted significantly greater adenylate cyclase activities in S49 cyc- membranes than parallel preparations from a B16 clone (F1-C29) of low metastatic capacity. The data suggest that aberrations in Gs function may contribute to the heightened responsiveness of adenylate cyclase observed in B16 melanoma clones of increased metastatic potential.
