Immunochemical evidence of cholecystokinin-like peptides in brain

  title={Immunochemical evidence of cholecystokinin-like peptides in brain},
  author={Graham J. Dockray},
A NUMBER of peptides including substance P1,2 somatostatin3 and vasoactive intestinal peptide4, have been found both in nerve cells of the brain and gut and in gastrointestinal endocrine-like cells. The biological significance of the occurrence of the same peptides in endocrine and nerve cells is not yet clear, although Pearse has suggested that these cell types might share a common embryological (neuroectodermal) origin5. An antibody to the antral hormone gasrin has recently been shown to… CONTINUE READING
