Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The catabolism of the 14C-labelled pentagastrin was investigated in rats. The following results were found: the labelled BOC-glycine fragment is split off from the pentagastrin in the small intestine; it is absorbed through the intestinal wall; and it enters first the portal and then the systemic circulation.
