Abstract :

Research was conducted to study the effects of testragastrin, histamine, carbachol and nitric oxide on mucin biosynthesis in distinct sites and layers of rat gastric mucosa. The animals were euthanized by inhalation of CO2 while tissue fragments were placed on a stainless steel grid in the central well of a plastic culture dish. Results indicated that acid secretagogues influenced mucin biosynthesis in a specific region and layer of rat gastric mucosa.
