Synergistic induction of ornithine decarboxylase by diacylglycerol, A23187, and cholera toxin in guinea pig lymphocytes.

When guinea pig lymphocytes were cultured with 1-oleoyl-2-acetyl-glycerol (OAG), A23187, and cholera toxin, ornithine decarboxylase activity was induced synergistically, peaking at 6 h. Addition of 12-O-tetradecanoyl-phorbol 13-acetate (TPA), A23187, and dibutyryl cAMP caused the same kind of induction. Cholera toxin potentiated the ability of A23187 to… CONTINUE READING
