GNRH significantly inhibits proliferation of a proportion of cancer cell lines by activating GNRH receptor (GNRHR)-G protein signaling. Therefore, manipulation of GNRHR signaling may have an under-utilized role in treating certain breast and ovarian cancers. However, the precise signaling pathways necessary for the effect and the features of cellular(More)
BACKGROUND Gonadotrophin releasing hormone (GnRH) analogs lower estrogen levels in pre-menopausal breast cancer patients. GnRH receptor (GnRH-R) activation also directly inhibits the growth of certain cells. The applicability of GnRH anti-proliferation to breast cancer was therefore analyzed. METHODS GnRH-R expression in 298 primary breast cancer samples(More)
Neuropeptide Y (NPY) regulates neurotransmitter release through activation of the Y2 receptor subtype. We have recently characterized a human glioblastoma cell line, LN319, that expresses exclusively NPY Y2 receptors and have demonstrated that NPY triggers transient decreases in cAMP and increases in intracellular calcium responses. The present study was(More)
