The broad-spectrum antagonist of neuropeptide receptor, [D-Arg1, D-Phe5, D-Trp7,9, Leu17]substance P, induced apoptosis selectively in human small cell lung carcinoma (SCLC) cells, which express gastrin-releasing peptide receptor, but not in other types of tumor cells as well as normal cells. The addition of gastrin-releasing peptide or bombesin and the inhibitor of caspase-3 suppressed [D-Arg1, D-Phe5, D-Trp7,9, Leu11]substance P-induced apoptosis. Moreover, [D-Arg1, D-Phe5, D-Trp7,9, Leu11]substance P-induced apoptosis was not suppressed by Bcl-2 over-expression. Thus, blockage of gastrin-releasing peptide receptor-mediated signaling may provide a novel therapeutic option in SCLC which has become resistant to conventional chemotherapeutic agents.
