The potent inhibitory effect of galanin on basal and pentagastrin-stimulated gastric acid secretion in vivo, and the presence of galanin-containing nerves in gastrointestinal tract and pancreas, suggested that this peptide may regulate the exocrine secretion of the GI system. Male rats were anesthetized with pentobarbital and the dose-dependent inhibitory effects of galanin on basal and stimulated pancreatic protein and amylase secretions were investigated in separate experiments. Galanin was… CONTINUE READING
