Treatment with colchicine or vinblastine, both inhibitors of microtubule assembly, renders quiescent 3T3 cells in an "activated state" as evidenced by induction of DNA synthesis and other criteria. Microtubule disassembly caused by colchicine or vinblastine brings about a dramatic expansion of total cellular UTP pools with a concomitant diminution in total cellular ATP pools, thus resulting in a marked imbalance in total cellular nucleotide pools. Colchicine and vinblastine also stimulate total… Expand
Changes in the Extent of Microtubule Assembly Can Regulate Initiation of DNA Synthesis a
TLDR
There is a correlation between the extent of MT depolymerization and initiation of DNA synthesis and a small fraction of total MTs, particularly those near the periphery, may be sufficient to initiate proliferative events. Expand
Dynamics of Nucleotides in Plants Studied on a Cellular Basis
TLDR
Nucleotide dynamics in the metabolic regulation and growth regulation of suspension cultured cells is discussed and metabolic pathways, their localization within a cell, and intracellular transport are described. Expand
Rapid phosphorylation of microtubule-associated proteins through distinct mitogenic pathways.
TLDR
It is concluded that phosphorylation of MAPs and mitogenesis can proceed through protein kinase C-dependent and -independent pathways in 3T3 cells. Expand
Nucleotide pools in suspension-cultured cells of Datura innoxia
TLDR
The concentrations of 17 nucleotides and three nucleosides have been determined in a batch suspension culture of Datura innoxia using a new procedure for extraction, purification and high-performance liquid chromatography separation of these compounds, indicating the preparation for and initiation of cell proliferation. Expand
Cytoskeletal active drugs modulate signal transduction in the protein kinase C pathway.
TLDR
It is shown that cytoskeletal active drugs modulate the mitogenic signal transduction pathway of the tumor promoter TPA in 3T3-L1 cells, indicating that changes in cytOSkeletal organization may play a role in regulating the levels of an enzyme critical for DNA synthesis. Expand
Biochemistry of growth inhibition by ammonium ions in mammalian cells
TLDR
The intracellular amount of UDP‐GNAc correlates with the level of growth inhibition in mammalian cell lines and has been shown to increase with an elevated cultivation pH and to be independent of the inhibition of transcription and translation processes. Expand
Paraquat-induced cytoskeletal injury in cultured cells.
TLDR
The results indicate that the PQ-induced dose-dependent cytoskeletal injury may be important to the mechanism of cytotoxicity of this herbicide. Expand
Nucleotide pools in suspension-cultured cells of Datura innoxia
TLDR
The sequence of formation and the regulatory dependencies of cellular pools of phosphate, sucrose, nucleotides and RNA in the production of proteins, starch and cell mass, and in the control of proliferation and cell growth are discussed. Expand
Intracellular ribonucleotide pools as a tool for monitoring the physiological state of in vitro cultivated mammalian cells during production processes
TLDR
A specific function for the application of in vitro cultivated processes is proposed with an NTP‐to‐U plot which combines the results obtained by the cell analysis and which offers a tool for the control and regulaiton of cell growth–derived procedures. Expand
Thrombin, epidermal growth factor, and phorbol myristate acetate stimulate tubulin polymerization in quiescent cells: a potential link to mitogenesis.
TLDR
Control of cell proliferation may be linked to increased MT polymerization and the resulting decrease in free tubulin pools, consistent with models for autoregulation of tubulin synthesis. Expand
