Resumen: The effects of cyclic 3', 5'-AMP, ergotamine or propranolol on newborn rat liver were studied by using biochemical assays, electron microscopy and quantitative morphometry. Cyclic AMP enhanced the normal postnatal rise in the glycogen-hydrolysing activity of acid alpha 1,4 glucosidase but had no effect on the maltose-hydrolysing activity of the enzyme. The results suggest that these activities may be due to different enzymes. Propranolol prevented the postnatal increase in the glycogen-hydrolysing activity of acid glucosidase and the breakdown of lysosomal glycogen, indicating that these phenomena represent betaadrenergic functions in newbom rats. Ergotamine also inhibited the postnatal increase in this activity and the lysosomal glycogen mobilization. A reasonable explanation for these results is that ergotamine interferes with the action or formation of cyclic AMP.
