Abstract

We studied rapid changes in location of cyclic GMP in Tetrahymena pyriformis. Insulin caused cGMP localization in cilia and near the plasma membrane (0.5-1 min). Later (1-5 min) cGMP localization was diffuse in cytoplasm with perinuclear accentuation. Inactive insulin analogs did not elicit these changes.
