Clonal analysis of a 5-azacytidine-induced specific increase in growth hormone production by rat pituitary cells.


The nucleoside analog, 5-azacytidine (5-azaCR) which causes genomic hypomethylation in many cell types, increased GH production by GH4C1 rat pituitary cells 3-5 fold. This increased GH production was independent of changes in prolactin (PRL) synthesis by the same cells; it occurred at 10-fold lower 5-azaCR concentrations than those which increased the… (More)
