Demonstration and characterization of immunoreactive methionine-enkephalin, leucine-enkephalin, methionine-enkephalin-Arg6-Gly7-Leu8 and methionine-enkephalin-Arg6-Phe7 in human phaeochromocytoma.

To elucidate whether or not human phaeochromocytoma contains methionine-enkephalin-Arg6-Gly7-Leu8 (Met-enkephalin-Arg-Gly-Leu) and methionine-enkephalin-Arg6-Phe7 (Met-enkephalin-Arg-Phe) together with methionine-enkephalin (Met-enkephalin) and leucine-enkephalin (Leu-enkephalin), all of which are known to exist in the same precursor molecule… (More)
