Stimulation of DNA synthesis in human fibroblasts by thrombin.

PMID:  206567     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Earlier work showed that thrombin stimulates proliferation of human fibroblasts in serumfree medium. This work demonstrates (1) that thrombin has to be prensent during most or all of the G1 period to ensure maximal DNA synthesis, (2) that DNA synthesis increases about three hours later after thrombin than after serum treatment, (3) that both thrombin and serum activate transport of uridine, D--2-deoxy-glucose and putrescine, (4) that thrombin is able to increase 3H-thymidine incorporation also in SV40 transformed human fibroblasts, in HeLa cells and in two continuous monkey cell lines.
