Epidermal growth factor (EGF) and tumor promoter 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol 13-acetate (TPA) stimulate PG synthesis and thymidine incorporation in cultured porcine thyroid cells.

Abstract

This is the first report to show that epidermal growth factor (EGF) and 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol 13-acetate (TPA) stimulate the production of PGE2 and 6-keto PGF1 alpha, an end metabolite of PGI2, in the thyroid gland. In cultured porcine thyroid cells, EGF and TPA stimulate PGE2 and 6-keto PGF1 alpha production; the maximum PG levels were obtained after 3… (More)
