Adenylyl cyclase is a membrane-bound enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of ATP to cAMP upon various hormonal stimulations. Isoform-selectivity among forskolin derivatives that forskolin and its derivatives are a direct activator of adenylyl cyclase, can be predicted mostly by the distribution of the negative electrostatic potential of each derivative.
