Cholecystokinin (CCK) is a hormone secreted by the I-cells of the upper small intestine in response to fat, protein, and some nonnutrients, for example, camostat, and a peptide/neurotransmitter secreted by neurons of the central and peripheral nervous systems. There are multiple molecular forms of CCK, for example, CCK-8, CCK-33, and CCK-58, with an active site located within the first eight amino acids of the carboxyl terminus and with a sulfate group on the seventh tyrosine residue… CONTINUE READING
