In the present paper the development and application of a novel gastrin radioimmunoassay (RIA) are described. 125I-labeling of non-sulphated human gastrin-17 (nshG-17) was performed by the iodogen method and the mono-iodinated hormone, as RIA tracer, was separated by reversed-phase high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). Serum gastrin levels were measured in response to intravenous application of isoproterenol, a non-selective beta and phenylephrine, a selective alpha-1 receptor agonist using a newly developed method specific for the C-terminal part of the hormone in rats. Isoproterenol at clinically relevant doses elicited a significant increase in serum gastrin concentration in a dose-dependent fashion, whereas phenylephrine was without effect.
