The Na(+)/H(+) exchanger isoform 1 (NHE1) is primarily responsible for the regulation of intracellular pH (pH(i)). It is a ubiquitous, amiloride-sensitive, growth factor-activatable exchanger whose role has been implicated in cell-cycle regulation, apoptosis, and neoplasia. Here we demonstrate that leukemic cell lines and peripheral blood from primary(More)
Seven strains of normal human cells (fibroblastic, skin epithelioid, and amniotic) ceased to proliferate in medium depleted of free calcium ion by titration with ethylenebis(oxyethylenenitrilo)tetraacetic acid (EGTA), whereas the growth of 9 of 10 human melanoma cell lines was not affected. Fibroblasts showed a rapid drop in thymidine pool size and(More)
