The effects of cholecystokinin on parietal cell secretion in isolated gastric glands.


Cholecystokinin (CCK), a peptide hormone found in both gut and brain, shares amino acid homologies with gastrin and has previously been shown to stimulate gastric acid secretion in whole animal experiments. To investigate possible direct effects of CCK apart from extrinsic neural and hormonal influences, we have investigated the effects of the sulfated octapeptide of CCK (CCK-8) in rabbit isolated gastric glands using 14C-aminopyrine accumulation and intrinsic factor (IF) secretion as markers of parietal cell function. CCK-8 stimulated a significant increase (p less than 0.05) in IF secretion and 14C-aminopyrine accumulation. IF secretion was dose dependent for CCK concentrations from 10(-10)M to 10(-6)M. The combination of CCK (10(-6)M) and histamine (5 X 10(-5)M) elicited IF secretion greater than that of either agent alone. These results are similar to those observed for pentagastrin (10(-7)M), suggesting that the effects of CCK on parietal cell secretion may be due at least in part to a direct receptor-mediated parietal cell response to this agent.
