    What is the difference between Adenyl Cyclase and Adenylyl Cyclase? My OCR textbook refers to Adenylyl but my OCR revision guide (which I trust more) refers to Adenyl. This is in context to adrenaline and how it reacts to when reaching target tissue.

    They're the same, although I've not read anywhere which calls the enzyme adenyl cyclase. Everywhere I've heard the name it's been adenylate cyclase so I would stick with that term.

    Ok. Thanks thats exactly what I got when I googled it and I got more confused. However after some digging through past papers I found that some referred to Adenyl Cyclase. So I will most likely use that. Its such a pain when certain substances have several names! :mad:

    Thanks for the help!

    I suppose it's different in each place, and you just use what you get taught, the same principle goes for neurone, neuron and nerve cell. One of my old lectures says "me-iosis" which I'm pretty sure is wrong, but I think I'm developing the habit now. If adenyl cyclase is in your past paper exams for your exam board then I would stick with that to be on the safe side. Best of luck with exams!
