Hypercholesterolemia caused a decrease in the activity of adenylcyclase in rabbit liver tissue and in thrombocytes; hypertriglyceridemia, which developed after administration of hydrocortisone, led to an increase in the activity of adenylcyclase and in the content of 3,5-AMP in adipose tissue. Activities of adenylcyclase, phosphodiesterase and content of prostaglandines E1 and F2alpha were measured in thrombocytes of 39 healthy men without any symptoms of of ischemic heart impairment, in 52 patients with coronary atherosclerosis of the III degree (by Myasnikov's classification) as well as in 12 patients during the period of rehabilitation after myocardial infarction. The activity of adenylate cyclase system was impaired in atherosclerosis. This phenomenon might be caused by alteration in concentration of glucocorticoids in the organism.
