Gene Summary

This gene encodes the peptide hormone gastrin, which stimulates gastric acid secretion, proliferation, cell migration and angiogenesis, as well as inhibits apoptosis. The encoded preproprotein undergoes proteolytic processing to generate multiple gastrin peptides differing in size. Mice lacking the encoded protein exhibit a decrease in the number of parietal cells, achlorohydria and a decrease in the colonic proliferation. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2015]
