Effects of cyclic adenosine 3':5'-monophosphate and related agents on acid secretion by isolated rabbit gastric mucosa

D FrommR Quijano


The effects of various adenosine phosphate compounds, theophylline, histamine,a nd metiamide, on steady rates of acid secretion by isolated fundic mucosa of the rabbit were measured by the pH stat method. Cyclic adenosine 3':5'-monophosphate (cyclic AMP), N(6), O(2')-dibutyryl adenosine 3':5'-monophosphate and theophylline increased the rate of acid secretion. Addition of theophylline in a concentration which has no stimulatory effect, reduces the effective concentrations cyclic AMP or histamine required for stimulation of acid secretion. Measurements of lactate, pyruvate, and CO2 appearances indicated that the increases in acid secretory rates were predominantly due to H+ and not organic acid accumulation in the luminal bath-secretion. Metiamide prevented the stimulatory effects of histamine and ATP. However, metiamide did not prevent the stimulatory effects of N(6),9(2')-dibutyryl adenosine 3':5'-monophosphate, theophylline, or 5'-AMP. The results provide further evidence for a role of cyclic AMP in governing the rate of acid secretion by rabbit stomach. The data also are consistent with histamine and ATP (at least in the concentration used) requiring adenylate cyclase activity for stimulation of acid secretion and 5'-AMP inh...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal Myelitis

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.
