Nonpeptidyl agonists for the somatostatin (SRIF) receptor family have been developed. We have studied the desensitization effects for two of these agonists upon SRIF receptor function in AtT-20 cells, a neuroendocrine tumor cell, which endogenously expresses two distinct SRIF receptor, subtypes. We observe that SRIF and the nonpeptidyl, subtype selective agonists, differentially regulate SRIF receptor subtypes in the AtT-20 cell.

More about this publication?
  • Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
