Cultured retinal glial cells from the rat are responsive to modulation by vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP). VIP (1 X 10(-6) M) elevated the intracellular cyclic AMP concentration from the basal level of (4.4-11.1) p mole/mg protein to (354-440) p mole/mg protein in three minutes at 25 degrees C. The half-maximal concentration is 4.8 X 10(-8) M, which is similar to that observed in the cultured retinal glial cells from the chick embryo.
