Secretin, canine is an endocrine hormone which stimulates the secretion of bicarbonate-rich pancreatic fluids. Secretin, canine can regulates gastric chief cell function and paracellular permeability in canine gastric monolayers by a Src kinase-dependent pathway.

1. Secretin: historical perspective and current status
William Y Chey, Ta-Min Chang Pancreas. 2014 Mar;43(2):162-82. doi: 10.1097/01.mpa.0000437325.29728.d6.
This review describes the history of secretin discovery, identification, purification, and structural determination; cloning of secretin and its receptor; synthetic secretin; and highly specific and sensitive radioimmunoassay to define the characteristic physiological role on postprandial pancreatic fluid and bicarbonate secretion, which requires robust potentiation by cholecystokinin. Secretin plays a key role in the negative and positive regulatory mechanisms of exocrine pancreatic secretion. Secretin-releasing peptides were discovered in duodenal acid perfusates of both rat and dog and in canine pancreatic juice. The release and action of secretin and secretin-releasing peptides are in part mediated via vagovagal reflex mechanism involving afferent sensory neurons in proximal intestine and efferent cholinergic neurons in the pancreas. Besides acetylcholine, many neurotransmitters or neuromodulators influence release and action of secretin. The action of secretin in the pancreas depends on insulin, which also suppresses local release of somatostatin and pancreatic polypeptide. Thus, release and action of secretin are mediated via neurohormonal interaction. Clinical conditions with hypersecretinemia and hyposecretinemia are discussed. Synthetic human secretin is used for studies of exocrine pancreatic secretion, secretin-enhanced magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography combined with exocrine pancreatic function test and diagnosis of gastrinoma syndrome. Therapeutic use of secretin is considered for the relief of severe pain in chronic pancreatitis.
3. Canine pancreatic juice stimulates the release of secretin and pancreatic secretion in the dog
Y Song, P Li, K Y Lee, T Chang, W Y Chey Am J Physiol. 1999 Sep;277(3):G731-5. doi: 10.1152/ajpgi.1999.277.3.G731.
A secretin-releasing factor (SRF) was found in canine pancreatic juice that increases plasma secretin and stimulates pancreatic secretion in rats, suggesting that a positive feedback mechanism may be involved in the regulation of pancreatic secretion. In the present study, we investigated to determine whether or not SRF releases endogenous secretin and stimulates exocrine pancreatic secretion in conscious dogs. Fresh pancreatic juice was collected from four dogs by intravenous administration of secretin at 0.5 microg. kg(-1). h(-1) and CCK at 0.2 microg. kg(-1). h. The juice was boiled for 10 min at 100 degrees C. Experiments were carried out in phase I of spontaneous cycle of interdigestive pancreatic secretion. The testing solutions were infused intraduodenally in separate experiments: NaHCO3 solution (0.1 M, 4.5 ml/min, 60 min), a corn oil (Lipomul, 2 ml/min, 10 min), boiled pancreatic juice (BPJ, 4.5 ml/min, 60 min), and mixture of BPJ and Lipomul. Pancreatic secretion of fluid and bicarbonate was significantly increased by either BPJ or a mixture of BPJ and Lipomul (34- and 31-fold or 41- and 38-fold, respectively). Plasma secretin level also significantly increased by 164.7 +/- 13.4% and 223.1 +/- 35.0%, respectively, from basal concentration of 1.7 +/- 0.5 pM. In contrast, neither bicarbonate solution nor Lipomul influenced the plasma secretin level or pancreatic secretion. In addition, when Lipomul was incubated with BPJ, no fatty acid was produced. Thus the increased pancreatic secretion in the dog infused with a combination of BPJ and Lipomul was caused by SRF in BPJ, which released endogenous secretin. Moreover, the increases by BPJ of both plasma secretin level and bicarbonate secretion were completely blocked by intravenous administration of an antisecretin antibody in these dogs. The observations suggest that SRF in pancreatic juice exerts a positive feedback effect on exocrine pancreatic secretion that is mediated by the release of secretin in the interdigestive state in dogs.
