WRK-1, a cell line in long-term culture derived from a 7,12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene-induced rat mammary tumor, responds to physiologic concentrations of vasopressin with increased precursor incorporation into phospholipids and with increased protein accumulation. Because vasopressin has been reported to be a potent mitogen for Hela cells and 3T3 cells, a study was conducted to determine whether it could act as a mitogen for WRK-1 cells. Under no conditions was a clear-cut mitogen response to vasopressin demonstrated.
