CaR-mediated COX-2 expression in primary cultured mTAL cells.


Primary cultures of medullary thick ascending limb (mTAL) cells retain the capacity to express calcium-sensing receptor (CaR) mRNA and protein. Increases in cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) mRNA accumulation, protein expression, and PGE(2) synthesis were observed in a dose- and time-dependent manner after exposure of these cells to extracellular calcium (Ca(o)(2… (More)
