Abstract

Retinoic acid (vitamin A acid) increased alkaline phosphatase activity in cultured cells derived from both normal rat prostate and the Dunning R-3327 transplantable prostatic adenocarcinoma. Retinoic acid was found to be 3-4-fold more effective as an inducer of enzyme activity than retinol or retinal. In one rapidly-growing cell line (UMS-1541Q) which has a barely-detectable level of enzyme activity in the uninduced state, increased activity could be detected as early as 3-4 hours after the addition of 10μM retinoic acid. This increase was totally blocked by actinomycin D and cycloheximide. The demonstrated rapid inducibility of alkaline phosphatase activity provides a specific marker for the action of retinoic acid at the molecular level.
