Expression of the alpha-subunit of glycoprotein hormones is an acquired feature of the endocrine cells of the oxyntic mucosa in patients with sustained serum levels of gastrin, and may be related to the hyperplasia-carcinoid sequence occurring in these patients. In the present study we have investigated the intragastric cellular localization and the circulating levels of alpha-subunit in a patient with Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. In this patient we have found that: 1) Endocrine cells accounted… 
Expression of the α‐ and β‐subunits of human chorionic gonadotropin by subsets of parathyroid cells in states of hyperparathyroidism
TLDR
In the present immunohistochemical investigation of 86 patients with various states of hyperparathyroidism, expression of hCG‐α by subsets of parathyroid cells was shown in 46 cases, and Bouin fixation was found to preserve the immunoreactivity of h CG‐α and hCG'β better than the formalin fixation used in this study, suggesting that the figures may be underestimates.
Effect of chronic hypergastrinemia on human enterochromaffin-like cells: insights from patients with sporadic gastrinomas.
TLDR
In humans, chronic hypergastrinemia alone causes advanced ECL cell change and abnormal expression of mucosal alpha-hCG and in contrast to animal studies, sex and vagal tone did not play a major role.
The pathobiology of the human enterochromaffin-like cell.
TLDR
The scientific evaluation of the relationship between gastrin, ECL-cell function, and the development of hyperplasia and neoplasia may provide some important information in regard to the molecular evolution of gastrointestinal neuroendocrine disease states.
Well-differentiated endocrine tumours of the middle ear and of the hindgut have immunocytochemical and ultrastructural features in common
TLDR
It is concluded that well-differentiated endocrine tumours of the middle ear are a distinct pathological entity characterized by multiple hormone production, typically involving three classes of hormones (pancreatic polypeptide-related peptides, glucagon- related peptide, and serotonin) of the hindgut endocrine system.
Gastric carcinoids and their precursor lesions. A histologic and immunohistochemical study of 23 cases
TLDR
A histologic and immunohistochemical study was carried out in 23 unselected nonantral gastric carcinoids and their precursor lesions and the results are of relevance for tumor pathogenesis and may provide the rationale for a less aggressive therapeutic approach in the patients.
Serum Gastrin in Zollinger-Ellison Syndrome: I. Prospective Study of Fasting Serum Gastrin in 309 Patients From the National Institutes of Health and Comparison With 2229 Cases From the Literature
TLDR
Detailed analysis of FSG levels in a prospective National Institutes of Health study of 309 patients with ZES allowed us to identify important clinical guidelines that should contribute to improved diagnosis and management of patients withZES.
Towards Understanding of Gastric Cancer Based upon Physiological Role of Gastrin and ECL Cells
TLDR
The ECL cell and its main regulator, gastrin, are central in human gastric carcinogenesis, which make new possibilities in prevention, prophylaxis, and treatment of this cancer.
Neuropeptide S receptor 1 expression in the intestine and skin – putative role in peptide hormone secretion
TLDR
The NPS/NPSR1 pathway may participate in the regulation of the peptide hormone production in enteroendocrine cells of the small intestine and might play a dual role along the gut–brain axis.
