Cyclic AMP can inhibit the growth of cells.

A. True

B. False

This question was posed to me at a job interview.

This question is from Cell Signaling and Signal Transduction topic in chapter Cell Signaling and Signal Transduction of Cell Biology

The correct answer is A. True

For explanation I would say: Cyclic AMP acts as an initiator of cascade that leads to mobilization of glucose. However it can also act to inhibit a variety of cells by blocking signals transmitted through MAP kinase cascade.
