Notes: Tryptase treated human fetal foreskin fibroblast cells (HFFF2s) showed a rapid increase in protigladin, COX2 and PAR2 mRNA, and protein levels. For these experiments 12, 120, or 1,200 milliunits/ml tryptase were applied to HFFF2s in culture. Cells were then analyzed by various means for protein and mRNA levels. Tryptase was also shown to induce proliferation of HFFFs in culture. (2747)
