HOW DOES MELATONIN WORK?
Melatonin binds to melatonin receptor type 1A, which then acts on adenylate cylcase and the inhibition of a cAMP signal transduction pathway. Melatonin not only inhibits adenylate cyclase, but it also activates phosphilpase C. This potentiates the release of arachidonate by binding to melatonin receptors. The melatonin receptors are G protein-coupled receptors and are expressed in various tissues of the body. The binding of melatonin to MT2 receptors inhibits adenylyl cyclase which decreases the formation of cAMP. Binding to MT2 receptors probably affects PLC which increases protein kinase C 'PKC' activity. Activation of the receptor can lead to ion flux inside the cell.
