This work was designed to determine whether IGF-1 and EGF modulate nuclear transfer and transactivation of the androgen receptor (AR) in human prostate cell lines (PNT1A and DU-145). We first characterized the IGF-1 and EGF receptors by ligand-binding assays with [125I] IGF-1 and [125I] EGF in a normal human prostate epithelial cell line, PNT1A. We then(More)
The consequences of purinoceptor activation on calcium signalling, inositol phosphate metabolism, protein secretion and the actin cytoskeleton were demonstrated in the WRK-1 cell line. Extracellular ATP was used as a secretagogue to induce a rise in intracellular Ca(2+) concentration ([Ca(2+)](i)), acting via P2x purinergic receptors, which causes actin(More)
