  • Neurotensin (NT), a neuroendocrine peptide, exerts trophic effects in vivo and stimulates growth of some tumor cells in vitro. Androgen‐sensitive prostate cells derived from lymph node carcinoma of the prostate (LNCaP) secrete NT and exhibit growth responses to NT. This study examines NT secretion, NT receptor and NT‐growth responses in androgen‐independent prostatic carcinoma (PC3) cells derived from prostate adenocarcinoma metastatic to bone.
