Treatment of cultured rat Sertoli cells with FSH or dibutyryl cAMP for 30 min resulted in phosphorylation of the same Sertoli cell proteins. Different Sertoli cell proteins were phosphorylated after calcium ionophore A23187 and 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA) treatment. A23187 stimulated the phosphorylation of hsp27, while TPA alone had no effect… CONTINUE READING
