Endocytic vacuoles are the site of trypsinogen activation in pancreatic acinar cells...

    Introduction: Pancreatic acini secrete ATP and nucleotide-modifying enzymes that include CD39 and CD73. Adenosine, the end product of ATP, elicited Cl- efflux in pancreatic duct cells that express adenosine receptors (Novak et al. 2008). However, effect of adenosine receptors on anion secretion...

    Clinical and experimental observations suggest that acidic environment in the pancreatic lumen may increase the risk of developing acute pancreatitis. The luminal pH is mainly regulated by both acinar and ductal cells. Acinar cells secrete digestive enzymes and protons which leads to...
