Exocytosis in mammalian cells. VI. Temperature dependence of pancreatic exocrine secretion.

The effects of temperature on amylase secretion in vitro have been measured under stimulated and nonstimulated conditions. In both cases a very rapid decrease of secretory rate was observed between 37 and 25 degrees C (60-70%). The decrease is less pronounced between 25 an 15 degrees C. Between 15 and 13 degrees C a drop of secretory activity (10%) was… CONTINUE READING
