The mechanism of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) inhibits oxotremorine-induced acid secretion was examined in rat stomach, in relation to the cyclic GMP system. NMDA (10 -7 M) did not affect the spontaneous acid secretion from the everted preparations of isolated rat stomach, but inhibited the acid secretion stimulated by oxotremorine, and this effect of NMDA was antagonized by 2-amino-5-phosphonovaleric acid (AP-5), (±)3-(2-carboxypiperazin-4-yl)propyl-1-phosphonic acid (CPP) or N G-nitro-L-arginine (L-NNA). NMDA also elevated the cyclic GMP content of mucosal slices from rat stomach, and this effect of NMDA was antagonized by L-NNA. These results indicate that NMDA receptors are present in the rat stomach and regulate the gastric acid secretion. The mechanism underlying the effect of NMDA inhibits oxotremorine-induced acid secretion may be mediated by the NO-dependent cyclic GMP system.
