Agonist/inositol trisphosphate-induced release of calcium from murine keratinocytes: a possible link with keratinocyte differentiation.

Abstract

Extracellular calcium concentrations markedly affect the pattern of proliferation and differentiation in cultured keratinocytes. When medium contains 0.1 mM calcium or above, the cells lose their proliferative ability, rapidly stratify, and terminally differentiate. Because 1,25(OH)2D3 (a modulator of Ca++ homeostasis) enhances the differentiation of… (More)
