Data Sheet

Background: The bombesin receptor BB2 (or gastrin-releasing peptide receptor GRPR) is responsible for many physiological actions such as inhibition of feeding, smooth muscle contraction, exocrine and endocrine secretions, thermoregulation, blood pressure and sucrose regulations, and cell growth. BB2 is expressed in the brain, as well as in colon, lung, and prostate cancer cells. The development of potent receptor antagonists that block BB2 receptor responses has potential for new therapeutic treatments in cancer.

Application: Functional assays
