Abstract

An endogenous ligand of the 78 kDa gastrin-binding protein (GBP) has been purified from detergent extracts of porcine gastric mucosal membranes by ion exchange chromatography and preparative gel electrophoresis. The ligand bound to the GBP with high affinity (mean IC50 value of 0.31+/-0.09 microgram/ml, or 8 nM), as assessed by inhibition of cross-linking of iodinated gastrin2,17 to the GBP. Both the N- and C-terminal halves of the GBP, which had been expressed individually as glutathione-S-transferase fusion proteins in Escherichia coli, and purified on glutathione-agarose beads, bound the ligand. Two peptides derived from the ligand were purified by reversed-phase high-performance liquid c..
