Expressed prostatic secretions and extracts of benign prostatic hyperplasia tissue contain a polypeptide growth factor(s) that stimulates the uptake of tritium-labeled thymidine by cultured 3T3 fibroblasts. Mitogenic activity was present in expressed prostatic secretions and extracts of benign prostatic hyperplasia tissue. The apparent molecular weights of the mitogenic fractions were estimated to be 300,000, 150,000 and 60,000 daltons for prostatic tissue extracts, and 30,000 daltons for… CONTINUE READING
