Secretin is a 27-amino acid gastrointestinal hormone that stimulates the secretion of bicarbonate-rich pancreatic fluid. We isolated and analyzed the coding region of the gene for the rat secretin precursor. The entire coding region spans 692 base pairs and is divided into four regions corresponding to the signal peptide and NH2-terminal peptide, the secretin peptide and processing signal sequences, a part of the COOH-terminal peptide, and the remainder of the COOH-terminal peptide, which are… CONTINUE READING
