Cooperation of adipocytes and endothelial cells required for catecholamine stimulation of PGI2 production by rat adipose tissue.


Disturbances of prostaglandin I2 (PGI2, prostacyclin) production by adipose tissue contribute to the pathogenesis of diabetic ketoacidosis and may contribute to the pathogenesis of hypertension and vascular disease. We studied the cellular basis of PGI2 production in adipose tissue, measured as release of 6-keto-PGF1 alpha in response to epinephrine… (More)
