We found that the convergently epidermal growth factor (EGF)-induced signal and the collagen-induced signal activate mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK), which induces migration. We examined the signaling mechanisms of EGF-induced cell migration on collagen using the A431 carcinoma cell. EGF (10 ng/ml) induced migration on collagen, but inhibited(More)
A new system was established using primary cultured mouse kidney epithelial cells to study the effect of PTH on renal tubular phosphate transport. The cells used in our study had alkaline phosphatase activity. They showed increased cAMP content in response to PTH, calcitonin, and vasopressin. Thus, these cells were thought to be a mixture of cells(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Phosphatases are involved in regulation of MAP kinase (MAPK). A431 cells migrate on collagen after EGF stimulation using MAPK. To clarify the involvement of PP2A in this MAPK-dependent migration, the expression of an isoform of the B regulatory subunit was inhibited. METHODS An antisense sequence corresponding to Bbeta cDNA was transfected(More)
It was the aim of this study to i) compare the effects of glucose and other hexoses with that of oleate on secretion of apolipoproteins (apos) A-I and B by HepG2 cells, and ii) document the effect of various metabolic inhibitors on the secretion of these apos in the absence or presence of extra glucose/oleate. i) The addition of 10 mM glucose increased(More)
