    Notes: Summary The nature of xenopsin immunoreactivity in mammalian antral G-cells has been reassessed. Xenopsin immunostaining was most intense in human antral G-cells, present in those of the dog and pig and not detected in guinea pig or rat tissues. Rigorous specificity controls for ionic binding of immunoglobulins to antral G-cell granules indicated that this mechanism was not responsible for xenopsin immunostaining. Preincubation of the xenopsin antiserum with xenopsin, human gastrin 1–13 and gastrin 2–17 completely abolished immunostaining at similar molar concentrations. Gastrin 34 was ineffective at much higher concentrations. These results infer that xenopsin-immunoreactivity in antral G-cells resides in the N-terminal region of gastrin 17. Examination of the primary structures of xenopsin and the N-terminal regions of some mammalian gastrins reveals a hitherto unrecognized homology.
