Stimulation of Mitogenesis by a Soluble Factor and of Prostanoid Synthesis by Cell-Cell Contact


The effect of soluble factors from the monocyte/macrophage (M0) on cell proliferation and the functional effects of cell-cell contact on the arachidonic acid (AA) cascade were studied with vascular smooth muscle cells (SMCs). Peripheral blood M0s were isolated by adherence or in a Percoll gradient, and alveolar M0s were obtained by lavage. Conditioned… (More)
