Adenylate cyclase activity from human renal cortical plasma membranes remained in the 100,000 xg supernatant (2 hrs) following treatment with 0.25% Lubrol PX in 10mM Tris buffer (pH 7.45), 1 mM EDTA, 0.25 M sucrose, and 5 mM NaF. Solubilization decreased total adenylate cyclase activity by at least one-half; responsiveness to calcitonin, glucagon and guanyl nucleotides, but not to parathyroid hormone, was preserved. Glucagon and calcitonin-stimulated adenylate cyclase eluted near the void volume on Sephadex G200 columns; two other peaks of non-hormone stimulated activity eluted later.
