Growth inhibition of SV40-transformed human keratinocytes by TGF-beta s is not linked to dephosphorylation of the Rb gene product.


We found that transforming growth factor beta 1 (TGF-beta 1) and TGF-beta 2 inhibited the growth of normal human keratinocytes and their SV40-transformed counterpart in a dose dependent manner. Both normal and SV-40 transformed keratinocytes accumulated in G1 when treated with TGF-beta s. The hyperphosphorylated form of Rb gene product (RB) was reduced by… (More)
