Gastrin-17-Gly (G17-Gly) has been shown to bind to non-CCK nanomolar and micromolar affinity sites on DLD-1 and HT-29 human colonic carcinoma cells and to stimulate cellular proliferation. However, in previous studies, we showed that C-terminal truncation of the gastrin-17 (G17) to the G17 analog G17(1-12) and then to G17(1-6)-NH(2) did not remove the(More)
Our previous studies have shown that stimulation of proliferation of DLD-1 and HT29 human colonic cancer cells by nanomolar gastrin (G17) and carboxymethyl gastrin (G17Gly) and reversal of growth by micromolar G17 and G17Gly involves binding sites which can neither be CCK1 nor CCK2 receptors; the N terminal fragment, G17(1-12), is sufficient to increase the(More)
G17-Gly has been shown to stimulate the growth of DLD-1 human colon cancer cells in a biphasic manner via high and low affinity receptors. In the current study, the existence of heterogeneous receptor populations for G17-Gly on the HT-29 human colon cancer cell line was investigated. The effect of either N- or C-terminal peptide truncation on receptor(More)
