  • Over 24-h culture with hydrocortisone (400 nM), activity of brush-border alkaline phosphatase, alpha-glucosidase, and leucyl-2-naphthylamidase and cytoplasmic-mitochondrial malate dehydrogenase increased (P less than 0.05) by 80-133% compared with controls. Uptake of 3-O-methyl-D-[14C]glucose after 24-h culture was increased (P less than 0.05) by 30% compared with cultures without hydrocortisone. Labeling of protein with L-[14C]tyrosine and glycoprotein with D-[3H]glucosamine increased (P less… CONTINUE READING
