BACKGROUND We examined the effect of sparkling water on gastroduodenal HCO3- secretion in rats and investigated the factors involved in these responses. MATERIAL/METHODS Under urethane anesthesia, a chambered stomach or a proximal duodenal loop was superfused with saline, and HCO3- secretion was measured at pH 7.0 using a pH-stat. RESULTS The amount of(More)
( )-(E)-4-Ethyl-2-[(E)-hydroxyimino]-5-nitro-3-hexenamide] (NOR-3), a nitric-oxide (NO) donor, is known to increase HCO3 secretion in rat stomachs, intracellularly mediated by cGMP; yet, there is no information about the phosphodiesterase (PDE) isozyme involved in this process. We examined the effects of various isozyme-selective PDE inhibitors on the(More)
Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is known to be an important gaseous mediator that affects various functions under physiological and pathological conditions. We examined the effects of NaHS, a H2S donor, on HCO3(-) secretion in rat stomachs and investigated the mechanism involved in this response. Under urethane anesthesia, rat stomachs were mounted on an ex vivo(More)
