Gastric acid secretion is activated by two distinct pathways: a neuronal pathway via the vagus nerve and release of acetylcholine and an endocrine pathway involving gastrin and histamine. Recently, we demonstrated that activation of H(+)-K(+)-ATPase activity in parietal cells in freshly isolated rat gastric glands is modulated by the calcium-sensing(More)
Gastric acid secretion is regulated by a variety of stimuli, in particular histamine and acetyl choline. In addition, dietary factors such as the acute intake of a protein-rich diet and the subsequent increase in serum amino acids can stimulate gastric acid secretion only through partially characterized pathways. Recently, we described in mouse stomach(More)
Neph proteins are evolutionarily conserved membrane proteins of the immunoglobulin superfamily that control the formation of specific intercellular contacts. Cell recognition through these proteins is essential in diverse cellular contexts such as patterning of the compound eye in Drosophila melanogaster, neuronal connectivity in Caenorhabditis elegans, and(More)
