Abstract

Guanylate cyclase activity was assayed in homogenates, in particulate and soluble fractions from retina, cerebellum, cerebral cortex and adrenal gland of adult C3H/HeJ mice with a dystrophic retinopathy. In comparison to control mice (DBA/1J), in C3H/HeJ strain a significant decrease in guanylate cyclase activity occurred in homogenates from retina, cerebellum and adrenal gland. In particular a significant decrease was found in particulate fraction of retina, in the soluble fraction of cerebral cortex and cerebellum and in both fractions of the adrenal gland. In contrast to the retina and cerebellum where guanylate cyclase activity in homogenates was found significantly decreased both in the male and female, in the cerebral cortex guanylate cyclase decreased in both sexes although in female this was more marked.
