Regulation by butyrate of the cAMP response to cholera toxin and forskolin in pituitary GH1 cells.


In pituitary GH1 cells, a rat growth hormone-producing cell line, butyrate elicited a dose-dependent increase in cholera toxin receptors as measured by an increased binding of 125I-labeled cholera toxin to the intact cells. Butyrate did not alter the affinity of cholera toxin binding, the dissociation constant being 0.4 nM for both control and butyrate… (More)
