The Canine Gastric Muscularis Mucosae and Acid Secretion: A Basket Case?
The gastrointestinal tract is designed to digest and absorb ingested nutrients. Appropriate digestion requires the provision of an appropriate milieu for the functioning of secreted enzymes and the co-ordinated movement of digested materials through the length of the gut. Thus motility and secretion need to be interlinked and co-ordinated (Greenwood and Davison, 1987). How this is brought about is still a matter of debate.
