In situ hybridization for gastrin-releasing peptide receptor (GRP receptor) expression in prostatic carcinoma.

Bombesin-like peptides (BLPs), which have been implicated in the regulation of growth of prostatic carcinoma cells, are a product of neuroendocrine cells frequently found in prostate tissue and are postulated to play a role in the initiation or progression of prostatic carcinoma. In this report, we examined the expression, in human prostate tissue, of mRNA… (More)
