The effect of pregnancy on experimental pulmonary metastasis was studied. Compared to the incidence of pulmonary metastasis induced by G6 cells in non-pregnant mice, the incidence of such metastasis was found to be greatly enhanced when the cells were injected i.v. in the latter half of pregnancy. The maximum enhancement was seen on the 15th day of(More)
The effects of glucocorticoid (GC) on the proliferation of Dunn Osteosarcoma (OS) cells were examined under in vitro culture conditions. Dexamethasone (Dex) inhibited the proliferation of Dunn OS cells in a dose-dependent manner, while the addition of anti-GC, RU486, to the culture medium in part recovered Dex-induced growth inhibition. The number of(More)
For estrogen-responsive B-1F cells, established from estrogen-responsive mouse Leydig cell tumor, it has been reported that the 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX) metabolic pathway appears to be associated with cell growth. The addition of 5-LOX inhibitor 2-(12-hydroxydodeca-5,10-diyl)-3,5,6-trimethyl-1,4-benzoquinone (AA861) to the medium resulted in a dose-dependent(More)
The effect of sodium butyrate on the cellular glycosaminoglycans of cultured mastocytoma p-815-4 cells was investigated using enzymic digestion, electrophoresis, nitrous acid degradation, and sequential partition fractionation. The average cellular glycosaminoglycan content of mastocytoma p-815-4 cells grown in the presence of 2 mM sodium butyrate was ten(More)
Methylcobalamin (MeCbl) is an important enzyme cofactor required for methionine synthase activity. It also inhibits, in a dose-dependent manner, the proliferation of an androgen-dependent cell line, SC-3, derived from an androgen-dependent mouse mammary tumor (Shionogi carcinoma 115). In SC-3 cells, androgen induces the production of androgen-induced growth(More)
SC-3 is a cloned cell line derived from an androgen-dependent mouse mammary tumor (Shionogi Carcinoma 115). A physiological level of androgen stimulates the growth of SC-3 cells through the production of androgen-induced growth factor. Methylcobalamin (MeCbl), one of the active cobalamins, inhibits the growth of SC-3 cells stimulated by androgen. It is(More)
SC-3 cells, an androgen-dependent mouse mammary carcinoma cell line, in response to androgen stimuli, induces the secretion of fibroblast growth factor (FGF-8), which in turn increases the proliferation of these cells. We have shown previously that methylcobalamin (MeCbl) decreases the levels of FGF-8 mRNA in SC-3 cells stimulated by testosterone,(More)
