Oxalate-induced initiation of DNA synthesis in LLC-PK1 cells, a line of renal epithelial cells.


These studies examined the effects of oxalate, a constituent of renal stones, on the growth of LLC-PK1 cells. Exposure to oxalate resulted in an initiation of DNA synthesis in serum-starved, growth-arrested cells as measured by 3H-thymidine incorporation. The effects of oxalate were comparable to those observed in response to 10% serum. Moreover, exposure… (More)
