Epidermal growth factor (EGF) has been reported to stimulate the proliferation of epithelial cells and increase Na+ flux and Na+-K+-ATPase function in alveolar epithelial cell monolayers. Increases in Na+-K+-ATPase in alveolar type II cells (AT2) have been associated with increased active Na+ transport and lung edema clearance across the rat alveolar(More)
Previous studies using arachidonic acid and preferential inhibitors of the arachidonic acid pathway have implicated the lipoxygenase system in choriogonadotropin (hCG) secretion by JEG-3 cells. Presently, JEG-3 cells are used in order to examine the effect of lipoxygenase products on hCG secretion. Results show that 30 microM 15-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid(More)
