The induction of autophagic vacuoles and the unique endocytic compartments, C-shaped multivesicular bodies, in GH4C1 cells after treatment with 17beta-estradiol, insulin and EGF.


The mechanisms for the formation of autophagic vacuoles were investigated using GH4C1 cells, a rat pituitary tumor cell line, whose induction increases intracellular levels of lysosomal proteinases and their mRNA by treatment with a combination of hormones (17beta-estradiol, insulin and EGF). By ordinary electron microscopy, autophagic vacuoles containing… (More)
