The ability of some different components of human cardiac tissue to synthesize prostaglandins (PGs) from exogenous precursor was investigated. Fractions of the cardiac tissue containing either parts of valve cusps and the papillary musculature or some selected tissue components such as myocytes, endocardial elements, endothelial cells and connective tissue were prepared and homogenized. Lowspeed supernatants of the various homogenates thus obtained were incubated with [14C]-labelled… CONTINUE READING
