I am made in K cells and travel to the pancreass after meals to increase insulin release.
I target the biliopancreatic system after meals and increase pancreatic bicarb secretion and also the delivy of bile.
I am mostly produced in the pancreas, and target the liver to increase glycogenolysis and gluconeogenesis. I am inhibited by somatostatin. I also go to fat and increase lipolysis and ketogenesis.
Similar to CCK, I increase panc and bile secretion. I can be used to help diagnose hypergastrinemia.
Stimulated by presence of CCK, I inhibit pancreatic secretion, and GB contraction, and slow down the foregut in the post-prandial state
Bonus: How is PPP used clinically?
Tumor marker for APUDoma’s
Stimulated by intraluminal fat, I also slow down the foregut in the post-prandial state
What is the name of the main pancreatic duct
The Duct of Wirsung
Mindless fact: Wirsung was murdered in Padua in 1643 over a fight about who really discovered the duct. Dr. Bartholin was also a co-discoverer.

Bonus: How does PLA2 affect lungs during pancreatitis
By digesting pulmonary surfactant and causing ARDS
What signs are seen on a flat-plate for acute pancreatitis
Sentinel loops, colon cut-off, dilated duodenum
What is a sentinel loop
Adynamic dilated loop of SB with small focal area of inflammation related to panc. Associated ileus.
