A highly sensitive and specific radioimmunoassay for cholecystokinin (CCK) has been developed. Fully immunoreactive [125I]CCK33 was prepared by chloramine T-catalyzed iodination followed by purification by gel filtration and ion exchange chromatography. A high titer of antiserum was obtained by multiple immunizations of rabbits with 15% pure porcine CCK(More)
Although increased free intracellular calcium (Cai) may be one of the main regulators of cell growth and differentiation, studies in cell populations have implied that not all growth factors produce Cai increases. In order to examine in more detail whether Cai increases were related to mitogenesis, we used digital image analysis of intracellular Fura-2(More)
The radioimmunoassay methods of secretin are reviewed with respect to production of antibody, preparation of radioactive tracers, and effect of plasma interference. The major difference in the secretin assay methods resides in handling plasma interference. Thus the assay sensitivity decreased markedly when the assay was conducted by diluting plasma samples.(More)
