We have examined and quantitated the expression of c-myc protein in two untransformed fibroblast cell lines, murine Swiss 3T3 and human MRC-5, c-myc protein is not detectable in quiescent cells, but it is rapidly induced upon mitogenic stimulation. Peak expression is seen about 3-5 h after serum stimulation, and corresponds to about 3-6000 molecules per cell (mpc). Thereafter, levels fall back to a quiescent level in confluent fibroblasts, but remain elevated at 1-3000 mpc in subconfluent cells… CONTINUE READING
