Secretin stimulates bile ductules to secrete both H+ and HCO3(-)-ions.

Abstract

Secretin-dependent ductular HCO3- secretion into bile may involve secretion of H+ to interstitial fluid and HCO3- to bile by the ductular epithelium. To determine whether secretin causes bile ductules to secrete H+, we have examined the effect of secretin on the elimination of an intracellular acid load from bile ductular epithelium during pharmacological… (More)
