Isolated rat parietal cells were used to investigate the role of intracellular Ca2+ in the action of cAMP-dependent secretagogues and cross talk between cAMP- and Ca2+ -dependent stimulatory pathways. Aminopyrine accumulation (an index of acid produced and trapped by the parietal cells), cytosolic free Ca2+, morphological transformation and cell viability(More)
