Abstract

The present study documents the effect of the planar, polar differentiation promoter N,N-dimethylformamide (DMF) on urokinase binding to colon carcinoma cells. Exposure of the colon carcinoma-cell lines to the agent resulted in enhanced specific binding of radioactive urokinase to all cells tested. Insulin binding to the cells was, however, unaffected by DMF. A DMF exposure period of 45 h was required to observe maximum urokinase binding to two representative cell lines FET and RKO. Optimal stimulation of both cell lines occurred with 0.8% DMF. Scatchard analysis revealed the dissociation constants to be unchanged by the agent with the increased binding of radioactive plasminogen activator reflecting an up-regulation of binding sites. In this regard, the cell line RKO upon exposure to DMF, displayed approx. 700000 receptors/cell, the highest value published, to date, for any cell line.
