In dispersed acinar cells from the guinea pig pancreas, substance P (SP) was found to stimulate outflux of 45Ca, cellular accumulation of cyclic GMP, and release of amylase. Maximal effects on accumulation of cyclic GMP and release of amylase were obtained with 3 x 10(-8) M of SP, 10(-7) M of Sp caused maximal outflux of 45Ca. These effects corresponded to 30-50% of the maximal effects obtained with caerulein, a cholecystokinin-like decapeptide. The concentrations of SP required for stimulation of 45Ca outflux, accumulation of cyclic GMP, and release of amylase correspond well with those which affect binding of 125I-tyr8-SP to pancreatic acinar cells.
