Gastrin, somatostatin, H+/K+-ATPase and carbonic anhydrase are principal elements of acid secretion. We investigated in the conscious sheep the effect of 24 h omeprazole (an H+/K+-ATPase inhibitor) infusion on these elements at the level of synthesis, storage and secretion. Omeprazole inhibited acid secretion - pH increased from 3.0 to 7.1 at 24 h. Plasma amidated and glycine extended gastrin increased 3-fold while the ratio of amidated to glycine extended gastrins (4:1) remained unchanged. Despite the increase in circulating gastrin, antral gastrin concentration and mRNA did not change significantly. Gastrin-17 (amidated and glycine extended) was the predominant form in the circulation and..
