  14. Hormone

    Gastrin...
    Made in: Stomach mucosa

    Active in: Stomach

    Stimulates secretion of HCl and pepsinogen by gastric glands.
  15. Hormone

    Somatostatin...
    Made in: Somach mucosa, duodenal mucosa.

    Active in: Stomach, pancreas, SI, gall bladder.

    Inhibitor - Inhibits: stomach secretion, stomach movement, stomach emptying, SI absorbtion, gall bladder contraction and bile release.
  16. Hormone

    Secretin...
    Made in: Duodenal mucosa.

    Active in: Pancreas / SI

    Secretin causes pancreas to secrete bicarbonate solution into SI, neutralizing the HCl there.
  17. Hormone

    CCK
    Made in: Duodenal mucosa

    Active in: gall bladder, pancreas.

    Causes the gall bladder to expel bile, causes pancreas to expel enzymes.
  18. Hormone

    Gastric Inhibitory Peptide ( GIP )
    Made in: Duodenal mucosa.

    Active in: SI? Stomach?

    Inhibits gastric secretion and motility. This is produced when fat / lipids enter the stomach, it has the effect of slowing down digestion and absorption of fat.
