Evidence is presented that inducing P815 murine mastocytoma cells to grow with serum activates a Ca(2+)-stimulated phospholipase A2 and the rapid release of arachidonic acid by the cells. Slower growth was also maintained by arachidonic acid or its immediate precursors or by diacylglycerols when bovine serum albumin replaced the serum. Together, arachidonic(More)
