Gastrin I is a peptide hormone primarily expressed in the gut and stimulates gastric acid secretion by binding to the CCK2/Gastrin receptors on parietal cells of the stomach. Gastrin I stimulates lectin-like protein Reg expression via activation of PKC and RhoA. It is used as a biomarker for gastritis.
