Both phorbol esters and phenylephrine promote membrane association of protein kinase C in 46 KLEIN pinealocytes (Sugden et a1 1985b). The association of protein kinase C is thought to bring the enzyme in close association with a substrate, and in this manner to initiate phosphorylation of a membrane protein involved in regulating cyclic AMP generation.

Mammalian pineal function appears to be controlled primarily through the release of noradrenaline from the terminals of nerves whose cell bodies lie in the superior cervical ganglia. This is the final segment of the following neural pathway: retina- retinohypothalamic projection + suprachiasmatic nuclei + paraventricular nuclei + intermediolateral cell column + superior cervical ganglia + nervi conarii + pineal gland. Noradrenaline acts on pinealocytes through a- and p-adrenoceptors in an atypical manner.
