The action of the C-terminal octapeptide of cholecystokinin and related peptides on pancreatic exocrine secretion.


The effect of the C-terminal octapeptide of cholecystokinin-pancreozymin (CCK-PZ), caerulein, and the C-terminal tetrapeptide of gastrin on pancreatic secretion of fluid, electrolyte, amylase, and protein was studied in anaesthetized dogs prepared with pancreatic fistulae. Against background stimulation of fluid secretion with submaximal doses of secretin… (More)
