Description: Bombesin is a 14-amino acid tumor-homing peptide that was isolated from frog skin. Its receptors are overexpressed in a variety of common human cancers, such as neuroblastoma and small cell lung cancer, as well as cancers of the prostate, kidney, uterus, ovary, breast, pancreas, gastrointestinal tract, head and neck, and esophagus. Bombesin can effectively deliver radioactive and chemotherapeutic agents to target cells due to its high affinity for these receptors.
