While amylase secretion from both parotid and pancreas is mediated by cyclic AMP, only parotid secretion is influence by isoproterenol. Adenyl cyclase in both tissues is stimulated by isoproterenol, but there is much less enzyme activity in preparations from pancreas. After in vivo administration of isoproterenol, parotid cyclic AMP levels are greatly elevated whereas little change is observed in pancreas.
