The molecular signaling events leading to protection from oxidative stress-induced apoptosis upon contact inhibition have not been fully investigated. Previous research has indicated a role for mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs) in the regulation of contact inhibition, and these proteins have also been associated with cell cycle regulation and(More)
The molecular events, which govern growth control upon contact inhibition have not yet been clearly defined. Previous work has indicated that there is an increase in the expression of mitogen-activated protein kinase phosphatases (MKPs) upon the attainment of contact inhibition in normal fibroblasts, concurrently with a decrease in ERK activity.

Mesenchyme (UGM) and epithelium (UGE) isolated from the urogenital sinuses (UGS) of 17-day male and female rat embryos were separated by using a trypsinization procedure, grown on soft agar, transplanted into syngeneic pubertal male hosts as subcapsular renal grafts, and then collected after 29-30 days. Neither UGM nor UGE underwent prostatic morphogenesis(More)
