SEVERAL peptides including substance P1,2, somatostatin3,4, the enkephalins5,6 and cholecystokinin (CCK)7–10 have been found both in nerve cells of the brain and in endocrine cells of the gut. CCK was first demonstrated in brain tissue by a gastrin radioimmunoassay as a peptide different from and smaller than heptadecapeptide gastrin7. Using six different gastrin antisera, Dockray provided strong evidence that the reported gastrin immunoreactivity7 corresponded to the COOH-terminal octa-peptide… CONTINUE READING
