Evidence is presented for the presence of an entire family of tachykinin-immunoreactive peptides in plasma and tumor tissues from patients with carcinoid tumors. The peptides include in addition to substance P and neurokinin A; neurokinin B, an eledoisin like peptide and neuropeptide K--a 36 amino acid long tachykinin which contains neurokinin A at its C-terminus. Neuropeptide K seems to be the tachykinin which is present in highest concentrations in plasma as well as in acetic acid extracts of… CONTINUE READING
