In our previous study, we showed that prostaglandin F2alpha (PGF2alpha) stimulates vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) synthesis via activation of p44/p42 mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase via protein kinase C (PKC) in osteoblast-like MC3T3-E1 cells. In addition, we demonstrated that incadronate amplified, and tiludronate suppressed(More)
The effects of two plant glycosides, ginsenosides Rh, and Rh2, on the growth and differentiation of mouse melanoma (B16) cells in culture were studied. These plant glycosides have a dammarane skeleton resembling a steroid skeleton as an aglycone. Ginsenoside Rh2 inhibits the growth of B16 melanoma cells, causes morphological alterations, and stimulates(More)
We previously showed that basic fibroblast growth factor (FGF-2) activates the mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase superfamily in osteoblast-like MC3T3-E1 cells and that p38 MAP kinase functions as a positive regulator in the FGF-2-stimulated synthesis of interleukin-6 (IL-6), a potent bone-resorptive agent, in these cells. In the present study, we(More)
