Vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) is a widely distributed neurotransmitter whose dilatory effects on vascular smooth muscle are believed to be mediated via specific receptors. To determine the possible role of VIP in regulating specific vascular beds, we examined the relationship between arterial wall VIP content as determined by radioimmunoassay and VIP(More)
Insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) is a polypeptide hormone structurally related to insulin with insulin-like metabolic effects. It is a potent mitogen, eliciting cell multiplication in tissue culture by increasing deoxyribonucleic acid and protein synthesis. IGF-I was found to promote the growth of cultured arterial smooth muscle cells. We studied the in(More)
Insulinlike growth factor I is a potent mitogen with insulinlike metabolic effects. Insulinlike growth factor I is synthesized in the liver, intestine, and other organs. Insulinlike growth factor I receptors are widely distributed and structurally similar to insulin receptors. Frozen sections of rabbit gastrointestinal tract were incubated in buffer(More)
