Human colorectal cancer tissue and matched uninvolved mucosa from 21 patients were examined by radioligand displacement for the presence of binding sites for bombesin-like peptides. Five cancers, but no uninvolved mucosa, expressed high-affinity, low-capacity bombesin binding sites (Kd = 6.53 nM, Bmax = 58.6 fmol mg-1 protein) of the gastrin-releasing(More)
Somatostatin is a regulatory peptide implicated in the control of cellular proliferation in epithelial tissues and this regulation may occur directly via membrane bound receptor activation. The aim of this study was to investigate somatostatin binding in human gastrointestinal cancer and normal mucosa. Plasma membranes were prepared from specimens of tumour(More)
