Direct observation of endocytosis of gastrin releasing peptide and its receptor.


Endocytosis of the gastrin releasing peptide receptor (GRP-R) may regulate cellular responses to GRP. We observed endocytosis in transfected epithelial cells by confocal microscopy using cyanine 3-GRP (cyanine 3.18-labeled gastrin releasing peptide) and GRP-R antibodies. At 4 degrees C, cy3-GRP and GRP-R were confined to the plasma membrane. After 5 min at… (More)
