It was discovered that prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), but not histamine, increased the incorporation of 3H-N-acetyl-D-glucosamine and 14C-amino acids into the acid-insoluble protein fraction of isolated, mainly mucoid cells of rat gastric mucosa. The cAMP at the dose of 1 mM enhanced, like the PGE2, the synthesis of gastric mucoids. Cycloheximide inhibited the basal incorporation of labelled N-acetyl-D-glucosamine and the amino acid mixture by 28 and 72%, respectively, and blocked completely the PGE2 effect on glycoproteins formation. It is suggested that the PGE2, unlike histamine, enhances the biosynthesis of glycoproteins in the mucoid cells of rat gastric mucosa. The cAMP is believed to be a messenger of the PGE2 effect.
