Pancreatic Amylin .
Amylin, Pancreatic .
Amyloid Polypeptide, Insulinoma .
Amyloid Polypeptide, Islet .
Polypeptide, Insulinoma Amyloid .
Polypeptide, Islet Amyloid .
A pancreatic beta-cell hormone that is co-secreted with INSULIN. It displays an anorectic effect on nutrient metabolism by inhibiting gastric acid secretion, gastric emptying and postprandial GLUCAGON secretion. Islet amyloid polypeptide can fold into AMYLOID FIBRILS that have been found as a major constituent of pancreatic AMYLOID DEPOSITS. .
Pancreatic alpha-Amylases .
Pancreatic alpha Amylases .
alpha-Amylases, Pancreatic .
A subclass of alpha-amylase ISOENZYMES that are secreted into PANCREATIC JUICE. .
Pancreatin .
Panteric .
Panzytrat .
A mammalian pancreatic extract composed of enzymes with protease, amylase and lipase activities. It is used as a digestant in pancreatic malfunction. .
Pancreatitis .
Pancreatitides .
INFLAMMATION of the PANCREAS. Pancreatitis is classified as acute unless there are computed tomographic or endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatographic findings of CHRONIC PANCREATITIS (International Symposium on Acute Pancreatitis, Atlanta, 1992). The two most common forms of acute pancreatitis are ALCOHOLIC PANCREATITIS and gallstone pancreatitis. .
Pancreas .
A nodular organ in the ABDOMEN that contains a mixture of ENDOCRINE GLANDS and EXOCRINE GLANDS. The small endocrine portion consists of the ISLETS OF LANGERHANS secreting a number of hormones into the blood stream. The large exocrine portion (EXOCRINE PANCREAS) is a compound acinar gland that secretes several digestive enzymes into the pancreatic ductal system that empties into the DUODENUM. .
