The action of histamine, carbamylcholine, and gastrin on oxygen uptake by cells isolated from canine fundic mucosa was studied in vitro. Viable mucosal cells were prepared by exposure of separated mucosa sequentially to collagenase and EDTA. Oxygen consumption, determined by polarography, was chosen as an index of physiological response of mucosal cells to secretagogues.
