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)
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)
Previously we demonstrated that human small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) seems to universally express the vasopressin gene, and this leads to the presence of a cell surface marker representing the entire pro-hormone precursor. In this study, we show this marker can be targeted with MAG-1, a mouse monoclonal antibody against a C-terminal moiety on(More)
