The present study examined whether the central neurons are involved in the stimulatory action of gastrin on the secretion of gastric acid. Gastrin (20 microg), which was examined and ascertained to induce a marked increase in gastric acid secretion in gastric-lumen perfused rats, was intravenously injected in Wistar rats under anesthesia with pentobarbital(More)
In order to clarify the involvement of cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase (protein kinase A) in acetylcholine (ACh) release from myenteric plexus of guinea pig ileum, the effect of H-89, a specific inhibitor of protein kinase A, on the ACh release was investigated. H-89 (0.1-10 microM) inhibited the spontaneous and nicotine-induced release of ACh in a(More)
