Induction of cyclooxygenase-2 in a rat gastric epithelial cell line by epiregulin and basic fibroblast growth factor.

Abstract

Prostaglandins play an important role in maintaining gastric mucosal integrity. Cyclooxygenases (COX-1 and -2) are the key enzymes involved in prostaglandin synthesis. COX-2 expression in gastric epithelial cells remains a subject of controversy, and a possible regulation of gastric COX-2 by growth factors has not been explored. Therefore, we studied the… (More)
