In order to evaluate the role of phosphoinositide turnover in growth factor action, we expressed human M1 muscarinic acetylcholine (Hm1) receptors in Chinese hamster lung fibroblasts (CCL39 cell line). In the transfected cells (39M1-81 clone), but not in wild type fibroblasts, the muscarinic agonist carbachol induced a release of inositol phosphates as(More)
In CCL39 cells transfected with m1-muscarinic receptors, carbachol stimulates phosphoinositide turnover and early events associated with mitogenesis as efficiently as thrombin but, in contrast to thrombin, fails to induce cell proliferation (Seuwen, K., Kahan, C., Hartmann, T., and Pouysségur, J. (1990) J. Biol. Chem. 265, 22292-22299). We show here that(More)
In order to evaluate the role of phosphoinositide turnover in growth factor action, we expressed human Ml muscarinic acetylcholine (Hml) receptors in Chinese hamster lung fibroblasts (CCL39 cell line). In the transfected cells (39Ml-81 clone), but not in wild type fibroblasts, the muscarinic agonist carbachol induced a release of inositol phosphates as(More)
5-HT1c receptors have been shown to act as protooncogenes in NIH 3T3 cells, inducing ligand-dependent focus formation. In order to assess their mitogenic and oncogenic potential in a different cell system, we transfected these receptors into CCL39 hamster fibroblasts, a well-characterized growth factor-dependent cell line. Cell clones expressing functional(More)
