Abstract

As a physiological phenomenon, acid secretion from the stomach was known already at least in the 17th century. But its mechanism was elucidated in more recent times only. At the end of the 20th century, gastric H(+)/K(+)-ATPase in the parietal cells was found to be responsible for a final step of H(+) secretion in these cells. In this century, several Cl(-)-transporting proteins for gastric acid (hydrochloric acid; HCl) secretion have been found. As inhibitors of gastric acid secretion, histamine H2 receptor antagonists (H2 blockers) were developed in the 1970's. This discovery brought a great benefit; that is, peptic ulcers became treatable by administration of a drug. In 1980's, proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) were developed. The target of PPIs is gastric H(+)/K(+)-ATPase and the PPIs exert generally more potent effects compared with H2 blockers. Most recently, several K(+)-competitive inhibitors of the ATPase are being developed. Here, we introduce gastric H(+)/K(+)-ATPase and its related proteins for gastric acid secretion, and several gastric diseases and their treatment by medicines.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 03 November 2022.
All research outputs
#7,328,446
of 22,441,655 outputs
Outputs from Metal ions in life sciences
#47
of 133 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#130,950
of 409,279 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Metal ions in life sciences
#20
of 52 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 22,441,655 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 44th percentile – i.e., 44% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 133 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 7.1. This one is in the 5th percentile – i.e., 5% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 409,279 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 56% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 52 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
