  • motility
  • The nervous system and endocrine system collaborate to increase gastric secretion and motility when food is eaten and to suppress them as the stomach empties. (wikipedia.org)
  • The effects on gastric motility can be antagonized by anticholinergic drugs, narcotics and opioid analgesics, that is, if administered together, Levosulpiride's gastroprokinetic efficacy can be decreased. (mrgpharma.com)
  • Domperidone is a peripheral dopamine D2-receptor antagonist, which regulates the motility of gastric and small intestinal smooth muscle. (hdpharmaceuticals.com)
  • increase in gastric
  • In October 2017, a separate group of researchers found , in a study of over 60,000 patients, that "long-term PPIs use was associated with a 2.4-fold increase in gastric cancer risk in H. pylori -infected subjects who had received eradication therapy. (litigationandtrial.com)
  • proteins
  • To fulfill these tasks in a regulated manner, the parietal cell is equipped with an exclusive collection of apical and basolateral ion transporter proteins that are exposed on the membrane whenever their functions are required (see e.g., review Ref. 45 ). (physiology.org)
  • adenosine
  • Whether adenosine- and A2BR-mediated functional responses play a role in human gastric pathophysiology is yet to be elucidated. (physiology.org)
  • vagus nerves
  • Stretch activates two reflexes: a short reflex mediated through the myenteric nerve plexus, and a long reflex mediated through the vagus nerves and brainstem. (wikipedia.org)
  • 2.) Vagus nerves carry parasympathetic action potentials to the stomach (pink arrow), where enteric plexus neurons are activated. (prezi.com)
  • Action potentials generated by the chemoreceptors are carried by the vagus nerves to the medulla oblongata (green arrow), where they inhibit parasympathetic action potentials (pink arrow), thereby decreasing gastric secretions. (prezi.com)
  • peptide
  • The molecules secreted vary in size from the small Escherichia coli peptide colicin V, (10 kDa) to the Pseudomonas fluorescens cell adhesion protein LapA of 900 kDa. (wikipedia.org)
  • Enterochromaffin-like cells also produce pancreastatin and probably other peptide hormones and growth factors. (wikipedia.org)
  • enzyme
  • Also, their mechanism of action involves covalent binding of the activated drug to the enzyme, resulting in a duration of action that exceeds their plasma half-life. (wikipedia.org)
  • The following are enzymes produced by the stomach and their respective function: Pepsin is the main gastric enzyme. (wikipedia.org)
