Epidermal proliferation was studied in the guinea-pig ear in vivo using the incorporation of [3H]thymidine into DNA as a measure of cell proliferation. Twenty-four-hour pretreatment of the skin topically with nanomolar amounts of either leukotriene B4 (LTB4), 12-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid, ionophore A23187, or the epidermal mitogen(More)
