Actions of prostaglandins E2 and F2 alpha on release of 14C-labelled mucins from rat submandibular salivary acini in vitro.

Abstract

Mucin secretion was studied in vitro using well-characterized preparations of isolated acini. PGE2 significantly (p less than 0.05) increased release of [14C]-glucosamine labelled mucins at the highest concentration tested (10(-5) M), but was ineffective at lower doses (10(-9)-10(-6) M). PGF2 alpha had no effect on mucin secretion over this concentration… (More)
