Abstract

An enhanced expression of transforming growth factor-α (TGFα) was demonstrated in two clones of NOG-8 mouse mammary epithelial cells, NOG-8 SR1 and NOG-8 SR2, that have been transformed by a v-Ha-ras oncogene. The amount of TGFα production in NOG-8 SR1 and NOG-8 SR2 cells was dependent on the level of p21ras expression in these clones, which directly correlated with their cloning efficiency in soft agar. There was also a decrease in the number of epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptors on the NOG-8 SR1 and NOG-8 SR2 cells that is proportional to the amount of TGFα secreted. These effects were specific for ras because neu-transformed NOG-8 cells grew in soft agar at a comparable level to NOG-8 SR2 cells yet did not show any increase in TGFα production or change in EGF receptor expression.
