"The signal transduction of the cAMP/cAMP-dependent protein kinase [protein kinase A (PKA)] pathway through multiple receptors is critical for many processes in all cell types. In T cells, the engagement of both the TCR-CD3 complex and the CD28 co-stimulatory molecule also induces cAMP, and subsequently activates PKA," scientists in Japan report.
"It is believed that elevation of cAMP levels in T cells is inhibitory of IL-2 production and T cell proliferation. However, the function and detailed signal transduction mechanisms of the cAMP/PKA pathway in...
