Gamma-linolenic acid has been shown to suppress the rate of proliferation of a number of malignant cell lines in culture. To test the proposal that this was a specific prostaglandin 1- or 2-series effect, 379 batches of MG63 human osteogenic sarcoma cells were seeded in Greiner flasks and cultured in media supplemented with a range of unsaturated fatty(More)
This communication reports the solubilization, the purification and the molecular characterization of the H2-histamine receptor from the cell line HGT-1 derived from a human gastric cancer. The receptor has been solubilized by Triton X100 and purified by gel filtration onto Sephacryl, affinity-chromatography (Sepharose-famotidine) and high performance(More)
In order to assess the effect of octreotide, a somatostatin analogue, on the growth of colon peritoneal carcinomatosis, 20 BDIX rats were injected i.p. with 1 x 10(6) colon cancer cells (DHD/K12 tumor cell line) and received octreotide, 65 micrograms/kg s.c. every 12 h (n = 10) or saline (n = 10) for 42 days, starting 3 days after tumor cell injection.(More)
To study the vasopressin receptor domains involved in the hormonal binding, we synthesized natural and modified fragments of V1a vasopressin receptor and tested their abilities to affect hormone-receptor interactions. Natural fragments mimicking the external loops one, two, and three were able to inhibit specific vasopressin binding to V1a receptor. In(More)
The human gastric tumoral cell line HGT-1 was previously shown to contain a membrane somatostatin receptor negatively coupled to adenylate cyclase through a pertussis toxin-sensitive inhibitory GTP-binding regulatory protein (Gi) (Reyl-Desmars, F., Laboisse, C., and Lewin, M. J. M. (1986) Regul. Pept. 16, 207-215). In this study, we have solubilized this(More)
Keratocytes, the resident cells of the corneal stroma, are responsible for maintaining turnover of this tissue by synthesizing extracellular matrix components. When the cornea is injured, the keratocytes migrate to the wounded site and participate in the stromal wound healing. The neuropeptide substance P (SP), which is also known to be produced by(More)
BACKGROUND A body of evidence demonstrating changes to the glutaminergic system in tendinopathy has recently emerged. This hypothesis was further tested by studying the effects of glutamate on the tenocyte phenotype, and the impact of loading and exposure to glucocorticoids on the glutamate signaling machinery. METHODS Plantaris tendon tissue and cultured(More)
This communication reports the isolation and the purification of the gastric somatostatin receptor from the human cell line HGT-1. The receptor has been extracted from the cell membrane by Triton X 100, and a monoclonal antibody to this was prepared. A series of affinity chromatographies (Sepharose-antibody and Sepharose-somatostatin-14) and a final(More)
Keratocytes, the quiescent cells of the corneal stroma, play a crucial role in corneal wound healing. Neuropeptides and neurotransmitters are usually associated with neuronal signaling, but have recently been shown to be produced also by non-neuronal cells and to be involved in many cellular processes. The aim of this study was to assess the endogenous(More)
