Induction of differentiation of murine embryonal carcinoma cells by ouabain.

Murine embryonal carcinoma cells (EC) can be induced to differentiate by a variety of chemical agents, including retinoid acid (RA) and dimethyl acetamide (DMA). However, it is not known how these agents exert their effects. In this study we demonstrate that murine EC cells can also be induced to differentiate by ouabain at concentrations which inhibit Na… CONTINUE READING
