Abstract

Cell growth is the result of intracellular regulatory processes which may be activated or inhibited by extracellular factors, such as hormones. These phenomena can be modified in neoplastic conditions. This study was undertaken in order to: (1) evaluate the role of secretin and/or somatostatin in influencing either proliferation or intracellular cAMP content of a human pancreatic cancer cell line (MIA PaCa2), and (2) identify the role of pertussis toxin sensitive C proteins in mediating the effects of secretin and/or somatostatin. Secretin, but not somatostatin, was found to stimulate MIA PaCa2 cell proliferation. Somatostatin (100 nmol/l) inhibited secretin stimulated cell growth. When cells were pretreated with pertussis toxin, secretin alone or secretin plus somatostatin had no effect on cell growth, thus indicating that membrane G proteins, blocked by pertussis toxin, are involved in internalizing the secretin signal. In conclusion, secretin stimulates pancreatic cancer cell growth through a pertussis toxin sensitive C protein mechanism. Somatostatin abolishes the stimulatory effect of secretin on cell proliferation.
