Adult rat arterial smooth muscle cells were shown to express mRNA for the platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) α- and β-receptors and to bind radioiodinated PDGF-AA and PDGF-BB in a phenotype-dependent and growth state-dependent manner. PDGF α-receptor mRNA was not detected in the intact...
A monoclonal antibody (MAb) specific for interleukin-6 (IL-6) was generated by fusing SP2/0 cells with spleen cells from a mouse immunized with rat spleen cell derived plasmacytoma growth factor (rat PCT-GF). This MAb inhibited the growth of an IL-6-sensitive murine plasmacytoma clone, MD90, in...
Basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) is a potent mitogen for human bone marrow stromal cells. Normally, large numbers of human bone marrow stromal cells are difficult to obtain. However, nanogram/ml concentrations of bFGF stimulate the growth of passaged bone marrow stromal cells both in media...
Studies were conducted with chicken granulosa cells to evaluate the relative efficacy of human recombinant transforming growth factor alpha (TGFα) versus murine epidermal growth factor (EGF) to affect cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) accumulation and progesterone production stimulated by...
The effects of treatment with L-thyroxine (T 4 ; 20 ng/g body weight, given subcutaneously on days 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9., 2.5 S nerve growth factor (NGF; 2 ngJmg brain wet weight, given intracerebroventricularly on days 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9), monoclonal anti-NGF (2 ng/mg wet weight, given...
There is significant evidence that the insulin-like growth factors (IGF) play a role in both murine and human hemopoiesis. In order to better define the nature and mechanisms of these effects, we have used a serum-free system to examine DNA synthesis and cell replication in murine hemopoietic...
Transforming growth factor-beta 1 (TGFβ1) and basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) are known to be potent inhibitors and stimulators, respectively, of endothelial cell growth in vitro. In the present study we examined the effect of bFGF on endothelial cell growth inhibitory activity of TGFβ1...
Fibroblast growth factors (FGFs) are a family of structurally related proteins that influence the growth and differentiation of a variety of cell types, including the cells of the vascular system. Due to the lack of signal sequence, basic FGF is not actively secreted. However, it has been...
