1 Phenylalanine and tryptophan were significantly more potent stimulants of gastric acid secretion and of pancreatic polypeptide and gastrin release than any of the other amino acids tested. Tryptophan gastrin Homo sapiens
2 We conclude that a major part of the acid-stimulating action of mixed amino acid solution can be explained by the aromatic amino acids, phenylalanine and tryptophan, which are also the most potent stimulants of gastrin and pancreatic polypeptide release. Tryptophan gastrin Homo sapiens
