The secretion of cyclic AMP, cyclic GMP, protein, calcium, and bicarbonate in the pancreatic juice of three nonanesthetized dogs with chronic gastric and duodenal Thomas cannulae has been studied. Intravenous infusions of increasing doses of cholecystokinin-pancreozymin (CCK) (1.5, 3, 6, 12, 24 Crick Harper-Raper (CHR) U kg-1 h-1) were administered together with a continuous submaximal dose of secretin (1 clinical unit (CU) kg-1 h-1). Doubling CCK doses every 45 min induced a parallel increase in the output of both cyclic nucleotides. Cyclic AMP output peaked at between 15 and 30 min for 3 and 6 U kg-1 h-1 of CCK and later for 12 and 24 U kg-1 h-1 of CCK whereas cyclic GMP output increased more constantly. Calcium output followed a pattern similar to that of cyclic GMP secretion. Flow rate and protein output attained their peaks at between 30 and 45 min. A strong linear correlation was found between the quantities of cyclic AMP, cyclic GMP, and the quantities of protein secreted in response to each CCK dose. This study demonstrates the presence of cyclic GMP in the canine pancreatic juice and the dose-dependent stimulation of the secretion of cyclic GMP and cyclic AMP by CCK in the presence of secretin.
