Monitor peptide (CCK-releasing peptide) mRNA increased on the administration of CCK in rat pancreas and the AR4-2J pancreatic cell line. Subcutaneous injection of CCK into rats at 8 h intervals increased the level of monitor peptide mRNA in the pancreas. Concomitant injection of CCK antagonist CR-1409 strongly decreased it. The monitor peptide mRNA was also increased by CCK in AR4-2J cells and was decreased by the antagonist. These findings suggest that the plasma CCK induced by prolonged intake of a high protein diet may be responsible for the adaptative increase in the monitor peptide as well as exocrine proteases in the pancreas.
