Characterization of human and rat immortalized clones of parotid acinar cells with respect to specific proteins and their mRNAs, and receptor-linked adenylate cyclase

This study reports the isolation and characterization of a rat nontumorigenic parotid acinar cell clone (2RSG), a human nontumorigenic parotid acinar cell clone (2HPC8), and a human tumorigenic acinar clone (2HP1G). The levels ofα-amylase mRNAs detected when usingα-amylase cDNA of 1176 and 702 bp for hybridization were higher in 2RSG and 2HPC8 cells than… (More)
