Trophic Effects of Endogenous and Exogenous Pancreozymin Upon the Exocrine and Endocrine Pancreas
Pancreozymin is known to have a trophic effect on the exocrine pancreas. Feeding rats or chicks with soybeans causes hypertrophy of the pancreas and this effect is ascribed to trypsin inhibitor contained in soybeans. Furthermore, it is now accepted by many authors that the pancreatotrophic effect of trypsin inhibitor is mediated by CCK-PZ released from the gut mucosa.1,2
