The most potent actions of amylin that occur at physiological plasma concentrations include inhibition of food intake, gastric emptying, acid and digestive enzyme secretion, and glucagon secretion. These actions share a common outcome; they each help regulate the rate at which nutrients (including glucose) appear in the blood (Ra). Amylin physiologically orchestrates, via several parallel processes, the rate of entry of nutrient into the circulation, as shown schematically in Fig. 1. In this… CONTINUE READING
