Induction in vitro of proteins in the cultured tissue cells of Aedes aegypti.

Autor(es): Wang C M; Matsumura F; Boush G M

Resumo: Phenobarbital, DDT, and dieldrin, all known inducing agents, stimulated the activity of protein synthesis in vitro in the cultured cells derived from Aedes aegypti larvae. These induction processes did not appear to be closely related to the gross activity of both RNA and DNA synthesis. Also the increase in the activity of the protein synthesis caused by these agents apparently resulted in the increase in the protein contents of the individual cells, rather than the increase in the cell number per culture. The cultured cells treated with DDT and phenobarbital had higher levels of expoxidation activity of aldrin showing the typical characteristics of induced cells.
