Increasing cAMP

Besides Forskolin, what are some other ways to increase cAMP?

Why do you want to increase cAMP?

It’s a long story!!! But if you have any advice, that would be great!

According to wikipedia:

"Molecules that activate cAMP pathway include:

* cholera toxin - increase cAMP levels
* forskolin - a diterpine natural product that activates adenylyl cyclase.
* caffeine and theophylline inhibit cAMP phosphodiesterase, which leads to an activation of G proteins that result in the activation of the cAMP pathway
* bucladesine (dibutyryl cAMP, db cAMP) - also a phosphodiesterase inhibitor"

Uh…yeah, I’m kinda curious why you feel it’s so necessary?
