We have investigated the role of cAMP as a signal transducer for TNF-induction of leukocyte adhesion molecule expression in cultured human umbilical vein endothelial cells (EC). Forskolin, a stimulator of adenylate cyclase, either alone or in combination with isobutyl methylxanthine (IBMX), an inhibitor of phosphodiesterase, fails to induce expression of endothelial leukocyte adhesion molecule 1 (ELAM-1 or E-selectin), of vascular cell adhesion molecule 1 (VCAM-1) or of intercellular adhesion… CONTINUE READING
