Secretin

Secretin is produced by cells in the duodenal mucosa in response to the appearance of acidity and chyme. It performs at least four major functions associated with the passage of the meal through the duodenum. It stimulates the pancreatic duct and acinar cells to produce copious aqueous NaHCO3 solution, it

Inhibits gastric emptying Inhibits gastric secretion

Stimulates insulin secretion from pancreatic islets

promotes a bicarbonate-rich bile flow, it inhibits gastric emptying, and it inhibits gastric secretion. The secretin secretion rate decreases as acidity production from the stomach decreases.
