Effect of Ostertagia ostertagi secretions and various putative secretagogues and inhibitors on aminopyrine accumulation in dispersed bovine abomasal gland cells
Eckersall, P. D.
Aminopyrine accumulation in suspensions of isolated gastric glands was used to determine the effect of Ostertagia ostertagi secretions and putative secretagogues and inhibitors on abomasal parietal cells. Parasite secretions did not affect acid production nor did histamine. Dibutyryl cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) and pentagastrin significantly increased aminopyrine accumulation by gastric glands and cimetidine, omeprazole and thiocyanate significantly decreased aminopyrine accumulation confirming their roles as stimulators and inhibitors of gastric acid production, respectively.
