GDP is replaced with GTP on the alpha subunit. Activated PKA can phosphorylate calcium activated potassium channels causing potassium efflux and promoting hyperpolarization. High PKA activity leads to increased phosphorylation of certain proteins, including myosin light chain (MLC), in smooth muscle cells. Increased MLC phosphorylation promotes the activation of myosin light chain kinase (MLCK). There is an overall increase in calcium levels in the cytosol. Increased calcium is able to bind readily to calmodulin. The activation of myosin light chain kinase activates the synthesis of Myosin LC-P which leads to a high concentration of myosin light chain and muscle contraction Myosin binds from actin causing sarcomere filaments to slide resulting in muscle contraction Actin Myosin Serotonin binds to 5-HT 4 receptors that activate Gs signalling to cause smooth muscle contraction in the gastrointestinal tract. Serotonin naturally binds to 5-HT4 receptors As cAMP levels increase, the levels of phosphorylated proteins involved in contraction increase, leading to higher intracellular calcium concentration.
