Epinephrine promotes growth and differentiation of human tracheal gland cells in culture.


Submucosal gland cells isolated from human tracheas by enzymatic digestion and cultured in the absence or presence of epinephrine (E) were used to investigate the possible action of this catecholamine on the physiology of the gland secretory cells issued from the human trachea. A 3 x 10(-6) M concentration of E shortens the doubling time of growth and… (More)
