Forskolin and a tumor promoter are able to induce c-fos and c-myc expression in normal, but not in a v-ras-transformed rat thyroid cell line.


The rat thyroid cell line (FRTL5) is dependent on thyrotropic hormone (TSH) for its growth. c-fos and c-myc oncogenes expression was measured in these cells after addition of their specific growth factor TSH and after treatment with either forskolin, an activator of adenylate cyclase or with a tumor promoter, TPA. Transient expression of oncogenes coding… (More)
