Phorbol myristate acetate (PMA) stimulates cell spreading and fluid-phase pinocytosis in mouse peritoneal macrophages. Colchicine (10(-5) M) and cytochalasin B (10(-5) M) abolish PMA stimulated pinocytosis but have little effect on cellular spreading (Phaire-Washington et al., 1980, J. Cell Biol., 86:634-640). We report here that PMA also alters the(More)
Phorbol myristate acetate (PMA) at a concentration of 0.01 microgram/ml causes an approximately threefold increase in surface area of resident, proteose-peptone-elicited, and thioglycolate-broth-elicited mouse peritoneal macrophages. Resident and proteose-peptone-elicited macrophages, cultured for 24 h in the presence of PMA, increase their pinocytic rate(More)
This study characterizes two- and three-dimensional ultrastructure and surface topography of polymerized networks of intermediate filaments (IF) isolated from mouse peritoneal macrophages. Isolated IF bound to monoclonal anti-IF antibodies in enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays. Immunogold labeling of IF with specific antibodies revealed that epitopes are(More)
