1972 (English)In: Upsala Journal of Medical Sciences, ISSN 0300-9734, E-ISSN 2000-1967, Vol. 77, no 3, 183-188 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Gastrointestinal propulsive motility was studied afterinhgastric deposition of a non-absorbable isotope inrats after subcutaneous glucagon injections. Glucagonadministration was followed by retardation of gastricemptying. The results indicated that the retarding effectof glucagon on gastrointestinal propulsion was independentof the presence of both thyroid and parathyroid tissue.The hypocalcemic effect of glucagon was exerted independentlyof the presence of thyroid tissue, Le. thyrocalcitonin.
