Biological And Molecular Actions

A. Gastric Acid Secretion

The parietal cells of the stomach secrete a solution of 0.15 M HC1 and 7 mM KC1, with only a trace of other electrolytes. The concentration of hydrogen ions is 1 million times higher (pH ~1) than that of plasma. The secretion of HC1 by the parietal cells of the stomach
