Abstract

These studies demonstrate that the potency of m4-receptor-mediated PLC signaling is highly dependent upon the presence or absence of other PLC-activating agonists. The ability of the m4 receptor to evoke a strong, but conditional, activation of PLC may allow this type of receptor to participate in a coincidence-detection system that amplifies simultaneous PLC-activating signals through a mechanism involving crosstalk between PTX-sensitive and PTX-insensitive G-protein pathways.
