Role of cholecystokinin in induction and maintenance of dietary protein-stimulated pancreatic growth.

Abstract

The role of cholecystokinin (CCK) in induction and maintenance of pancreatic growth stimulated by a high-protein diet was investigated. Rats adapted to 5% casein diet were switched to 70% casein for 21 days. MK-329, a CCK receptor antagonist, was administered at 2.5 mg.kg-1.day-1 ip, beginning on day zero (day zero treatment) or day 7 (midcourse treatment… (More)
