The growth rate of numerous cancer cell lines is regulated in part by actions of neuropeptides of the vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) family, which also includes pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating peptide (PACAP), glucagon, and peptide histidine/isoleucine (PHI). The aim of this work was to investigate the effect of these peptides on the growth of(More)
Vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) is known to regulate proliferation or differentiation in normal and tumoral cells. SH-SY5Y is a differentiated cell subclone derived from the SK-N-SH human neuroblastoma cell line and possess all the components for an autocrine action of VIP. In the present study, we investigated the morphological changes and(More)
The vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) has been shown to regulate cell proliferation and differentiation in many cell types. We previously reported that this neuropeptide inhibited proliferation in HT29 adenocarcinoma cells cultured in serum-containing medium. In addition, it has been demonstrated that VIP induced a potent stimulation of intracellular cAMP(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Zeta-associated protein 70 (ZAP-70), a member of the Syk family of protein tyrosine kinases, is normally expressed in T and NK cells. While little is known about ZAP-70 expression in normal human B cells, it has been reported that ZAP-70 is expressed in a subset of patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) with a poor(More)
Neuroblastoma (NB), the most common extracranial tumor during childhood arises from the embryonic sympathetic nervous system. Remarkably, NB can spontaneously regress, even after metastasis, leading to complete remission. Subpopulations of neuroblastic (N-type) and nonneuronal cells coexist in NB. Expression of the high-affinity nerve growth factor (NGF)(More)
