- RATS: "Sodium fluoride stimulation study demonstrated dual actions of fluoride on adenylate cyclase; when the cells were assayed with
increasing concentration of NaF, the AC activity increased as the concentration of NaF increased from 0.01 to 1 mM, but decreased strikingly as that concentration increased from 1 mM to 100 mM....
the concentration of nonhydrolyzable guanine nucleotide analogs increased in the presence of TSH, there was first an increase in adenylate cyclase activity, followed by a decrease at higher concentration."

submandibular gland by sodium fluoride--protection by epidermal growth factor" In Vivo 19(2):327-34 (2005)
- "At a lower concentration of NaF (< 2 microM), the branching morphogenesis was slightly enhanced, whereas at a higher
concentration of NaF (4 - 8 microM), it was almost completely inhibited. The inhibitory effect of NaF at the higher concentration was abrogated by stimultaneous addition of epidermal growth factor (EGF), but
not by 5alpha-dihydrotestosterone (DHT) or insulin-like growth factor(IGF). These data demonstrate that EGF can effectively reduce the cytotoxic activity of NaF at micromolar concentration."

- "...However, as little as 0.05-0.15 mM NaF induced a significant increase in cAMP production. It was also found that NaF would alter the production of glucose in isolated rat hepatocytes. When hepatocytes from fed rats were incubated with 0.05-5 mM NaF there was an increase in amount of glucose released from endogenous sources. Also NaF resulted in a decrease in lactate and pyruvate production. Similarly NaF stimulated glucose production in hepatocytes from fasted rats. The maximal stimulation was observed with about 0.15-0.25 mM NaF.
At NaF concentrations greater than 1.5 mM a decrease in glucose production was observed. It is concluded that NaF increases the level of cAMP and alters glucose metabolism in intact hepatocytes."

"Fluoride had a biphasic effect on cell proliferation, with enhanced proliferation at 16 microM, and reduced proliferation at greater
than 1 mM F...Flow cytometry showed that both 10 microM and 20 microM NaF significantly increased the apoptotic index of ameloblast-lineage cells."

Elem Res 116(3):279-88 (2007) doi: 10.1007/BF02698012. PMID: 17709908
"Results showed the significantly elevated activity of Ca2+-ATPase in the cells exposed to 1.0 and 5.0 mg/L fluoride (p < 0.05), and
this enzyme activity indicated inhibitory trend in cells of the 7.5- and 12.5-mg/L fluoride-treated group. To sum up, the effect of fluoride on Ca2+-ATPase is a similar to a dose-effect relationship phenomenon
characterized by low-dose stimulation and high-dose inhibition, and the increase of [Ca2+]i probably plays a key role on the mechanism of renal injury in fluorosis." [Gq/11]
