Distension of the isolated mouse stomach stimulated gastric acid secretion. Atropine, cimetidine or proglumide antagonized the actions of cholinomimetics, histamine and gastrin, respectively. Those antagonists and the nerve-blocking agent tetrodotoxin were without effect on basal secretion or distension-stimulated secretion. It is concluded that in the isolated mouse stomach neither basal secretion nor secretion evoked by distension involve the release of any of the established physiological secretagogues or the activation of intramural nerves.
