The cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) is recognized as a multifunctional protein that is involved in Cl(-) secretion, as well as acting as a regulatory protein. In order for acid secretion to take place a complex interaction of transport proteins and channels must occur at the apical pole of the parietal cell. Included in this process is at least one K(+) and Cl(-) channel, allowing for both recycling of K(+) for the H,K-ATPase, and Cl(-) secretion, necessary for the generation of concentrated HCl in the gastric gland lumen. We have previously shown that an ATP-sensitive potassium channel (K(ATP)) is expressed in parietal cells. In the present study we measured secretagogue-induced acid secretion from wild-type and DeltaF508-deficient mice in isolated gastric glands and whole stomach preparations. Secretagogue-induced acid secretion in wild-type mouse gastric glands could be significantly reduced with either glibenclamide or the specific inhibitor CFTR-inh172. In DeltaF508-deficient mice, however, histamine-induced acid secretion was significantly less than in wild-type mice. Furthermore, immunofluorescent localization of sulfonylurea 1 and 2 failed to show expression of a sulfonylurea receptor in the parietal cell, thus further implicating CFTR as the ATP-binding cassette transporter associated with the K(ATP) channels. These results demonstrate a regulatory role for the CFTR protein in normal gastric acid secretion.

    ABSTRACT: The gastric H+-K+-ATPase pumps H+ into the lumen and takes up K+ in parallel. In the acid-producing parietal cells, luminal KCNE2/KCNQ1 K+ channels play a pivotal role in replenishing K+ in the luminal fluid. Inactivation of KCNE2/KCNQ1 channels abrogates gastric acid secretion and dramatically modifies the architecture of gastric mucosa.

    ABSTRACT: Abstract The present study was performed in six asymptomatic patients with a history of resistant duodenal ulcers in whom 24 h intragastric pH, gastric juice pepsin and PGE2 concentrations, as well as serum gastrin concentrations, were measured. We wanted to compare the effects on these parameters of a single night time (q.h.s.) dose of nizatidine 300 mg (N1), nizatidine 300 mg b.i.d. (N2), ranitidine 300 mg q.h.s. (R1) or ranitidine 300 mg b.i.d. (R2) compared with placebo (P). During the night (22.00–08.00 h), all treatments gave a higher mean pH than P, but during the day (08.00–22.00 h) the mean pH was higher than P only for patients administered R2 and N2. Doubling the dose of nizatidine (N2vs N1) or ranitidine (R2vs R1) increased the mean daytime pH, but had no effect on night time pH. The daytime pepsin concentration was unaffected by H2-receptor antagonists, while night time pepsin was lower with R1 and R2, but not with N1 or N2. The night time gastrin concentration was unaffected by H2-receptor antagonists; doubling the dose of the H2-receptor antagonist (R2vs R1 and N2vs N1) increased daytime gastrin concentration. During the night, each treatment increased PGE2 concentration by at least six-fold compared with P. Thus, where it is therapeutically indicated to achieve greater suppression of acid secretion, doubling the total daily dose by dosing with twice daily versus once daily night time nizatidine or ranitidine is efficacious.

    ABSTRACT: Recent milestones in the understanding of gastric acid secretion and treatment of acid-peptic disorders include the (1) discovery of histamine H(2)-receptors and development of histamine H(2)-receptor antagonists, (2) identification of H(+)K(+)-ATPase as the parietal cell proton pump and development of proton pump inhibitors, and (3) identification of Helicobacter pylori as the major cause of duodenal ulcer and development of effective eradication regimens. This review emphasizes the importance and relevance of gastric acid secretion and its regulation in health and disease. We review the physiology and pathophysiology of acid secretion as well as evidence regarding its inhibition in the management of acid-related clinical conditions.
