Secretin/vasoactive intestinal peptide-stimulated secretion of bombesin/gastrin releasing peptide from human small cell carcinoma of the lung.

Bombesin/gastrin releasing peptide-like immunoreactivity (BLI) is found in the majority of small cell carcinoma of the lung (SCCL) cell lines examined. Because BLI is present in high concentration in SCCL we studied the mechanism of BLI secretion from several SCCL cell lines and in patients with SCCL. In cell line NCI-H345 the structurally related… CONTINUE READING
