We examined the effect of highly purified platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) on prostacyclin (PGI2) release by cultured human umbilical vein and bovine aortic endothelial cells. PDGF tested at concentrations equal to or exceeding those observed in serum did not increase endothelial cell PGI2 synthesis as measured by radioimmunoassay of its metabolite, 6-keto-PGF1 alpha. In contrast, cells incubated with 20% human whole blood serum (WBS) demonstrated significantly increased PGI2 production… CONTINUE READING
