Absence of Prostaglandin E2-Induced Radioprotection in Two Cell Lines Lacking Specific PGE2-Binding Sites
Prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) is an effective radioprotective agent in vivo but is not consistently radioprotective in vitro. The present study examines the possibility that PGE2-induced radioprotection is receptor mediated, and therefore, that cell lines lacking PGE2 receptors will not be protected. Two cell lines were examined: the DC3 transformed rat granulosa cell line which responds to PGE2 and the HSDM1C1 mouse fibrosarcoma cell line which produces PGE2.
