TPA induces a block of differentiation and increases the susceptibility to neoplastic transformation of a rat thyroid epithelial cell line.


The PC Cl 3 cell line is a well-characterized epithelial cell line of rat thyroid origin. This cell line retains in vitro the typical markers of thyroid differentiation: thyroglobulin (TG) synthesis and secretion, iodide uptake, thyroperoxidase (TPO) expression, and dependency on TSH for growth. Although the differentiated phenotype of thyroid cells has… (More)
