A new CCK analogue differentiates two functionally distinct CCK receptors in rat and mouse pancreatic acini

Analysis of the competitive inhibition of 125I-labeled cholecystokinin octapeptide (CCK-8) binding to isolated rat or mouse pancreatic acini showed that in both species CCK-8 interacts with two different affinity sites. A newly synthesized CCK analogue modified at the COOH-terminal phenylalanine residue totally inhibited 125I-CCK binding. This interaction occurred with sites of a single affinity in rat acini but with two different affinity sites in mouse acini. When acini were incubated with increasing concentrations of CCK-8, a biphasic stimulation of amylase release was observed. By use of rat acini, the analogs stimulated amylase release but caused no inhibition at supramaximal concentrations. By contrast, in mouse pancreatic acini, analogues showed a biphasic stimulation of amylase release similar to CCK-8. Both CCK-8 and the analogue stimulated [3H]leucine incorporation into protein at low concentrations in rat pancreatic acini. Higher concentrations of CCK-8 profoundly inhibited [3H]leucine incorporation, whereas the analogue had no inhibitory effect. Moreover, the analogue at higher concentrations blocked the inhibition of [3H]leucine incorporation caused by CCK-8 but did not affect carbamylcholine-induced inhibition. In...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal Myelitis

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease by recent genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research.
