Characterization of Bombesin / Gastrin-releasing Peptide Receptors in Human Breast Cancer and Their Relationship to Steroid Receptor Expression 1

Abstract

Bombesin (BN) and its mammalian counterpart, gastrin-releasing pep tide (GRP), are hormonally active peptides which appear to function as autocrine or paracrine growth factors in a variety of cells. As part of a long-term investigation ofthe relationship of peptide and steroid hormone receptors to breast cancer progression and treatment, we examined the… (More)
