Motilin controls cyclic release of insulin through vagal cholinergic muscarinic pathways in fasted dogs.

Abstract

The effect of motilin on insulin release has not been studied in the interdigestive state. Adult mongrel dogs were chronically implanted with force transducers in the stomach and duodenum to monitor contractile activity, and the plasma motilin and insulin concentrations were measured by a specific radioimmunoassay and enzyme immunoassay, respectively. The… (More)
