Pig platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) increased the rate of [32P]Pi uptake by murine fibroblasts, resulting in a 3-9-fold elevation of the specific radioactivity of ATP, PtdInsP, PtdInsP2, PtdIns and phosphatidic acid. The specific radioactivity was 10-60-fold higher in ATP than in the four phospholipids. These substances are therefore not in metabolic equilibrium, which complicates determination of inositol phospholipid turnover.
