Serum stimulation of phosphate uptake into 3T3 cells

Journal of Cellular Physiology
D A Hilborn


The stimulation by calf serum of phosphate uptake into 3T3 cells results from a change in maximum velocity of the transport process with no change in the Michaelis constant. Only arsenate among a series of inorganic structural analogs of phosphate inhibited phosphate uptake indicating a high specificity for the process. The arsenate inhibition was competitive in nature. Papaverine, theophylline, and protaglandin E1, drugs known to maintain high intracellular levels of cAMP, had little effect on serum stimulated phosphate uptake. The phosphate uptake stimulating factor(s) in serum could be distinguised from the 3T3 cell survival and migration factors by stability characteristics, but this factor(s) could not be completely separated from a uridine uptake stimulation activity or growth promoting activity using a variety of serum fractionation procedures. Only partial stimulation of the uptake process was achieved with any one serum fraction indicating a multiplicity of serum components is probably involved in this process. Because of the rapidity of serum activation of phosphate uptake and its apparent independence of intracellular cyclic nucleotide levels, it is suggested that serum factors may stimulate phosphate uptake by induc...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
