Secretin is a peptide made of 27 amino acids with a molecular mass of 3.07KDa, it is secreted by secretin cells (S-cells) that localize the antropyloric, duodenal, jejunal and ileal mucosa of human tissue. ?Secretin stimulates pancreatic bicarbonate. Hypersecretinemia has been observed in duodenal ulcers, Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, and chronic renal failure. Secretin production increases in duodenal ulcer disease as well as in Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, it is secondary to the sustained acid hypersecretion and the high acidity of the fluids around the duodenal mucosa. The hypersecretinemia of chronic renal failure is mainly due to decreased metabolism of secretin by the failing kidneys.
