Abstract

A membrane receptor and a cytosolic receptor for somatostatin were found in a human undifferentiated pancreatic cancer cell line (MIA PaCa-2). Binding of somatostatin to this membrane receptor activates dephosphorylation of a phosphotyrosyl-membrane protein whose phosphorylation was promoted by epidermal growth factor (EGF). Vanadate, a purported inhibitor of dephosphorylation, interferes with the action of somatostatin. These findings suggest a possible biochemical mechanism by which somatostatin may inhibit the growth of human pancreatic cancers.
