We demonstrate here that functional NMDAR1 and NMDAR2 receptors are expressed by Mcf-7 and SKBR3 breast cancer cell lines, and possibly by most or all high-grade breast tumors, and that these receptors are important for the growth of human breast cancer xenografts in mice. RT-PCR demonstrated mRNA for both NMDAR1 and NMDAR2 receptors are expressed in both(More)
We previously showed that functional N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors are expressed by human neuroblastoma cells. In this study we demonstrate functional NMDAR1 and NMDAR2 receptors are expressed by small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) classical cell lines NCI H146, NCI H345, and DMS 53, by variant cell line NCI H82, and by most SCLC tumors, and that these(More)
A native form of mouse monoclonal IgG1 antibody called MAG-1, which recognizes an epitope on provasopressin, has been found to shrink and produce extensive necrosis of human breast tumor xenografts in nu/nu mice. We examined the ability of 90Yttrium-labeled and native MAG-1 to affect the growth in nu/nu mice of cancer xenografts that were(More)
With inhibition or absence of the bradykinin B2 receptor (B2R), B1R is upregulated and assumes some of the hemodynamic properties of B2R, indicating that both participate in the maintenance of normal vasoregulation or to development of hypertension. Herein we further evaluate the role of bradykinin in normal blood pressure (BP) regulation and its(More)
