26660537 motilin-induced phase III contractions signal hunger in healthy subjects and that this system is disturbed in morbidly obese patients--{REVIEW}
22632857 Motilin stimulates growth hormone secretion and regulates interdigestive migrating contractions and fasting motor patterns in the gastrointestinal tract. [REVIEW]
21771971 Motilin may directly influence adipocyte functions by stimulating energy storage.
20338210 Ghrelin covaried with motilin in plasma in irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) but not in plasma from healthy subjects. This suggests the two peptides act together in IBS.
19851445 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18609694 About 35.9% of the patients with a T tube after cholecystectomy and choledochotomy have duodenal-biliary reflux. Most of them have sphincter of Oddi hypomotility and the decreased level of plasma motilin and serum gastrin.
18358279 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18234640 The abnormal excretion of hormonal factors is closely related to gallstone formation
17595255 Ghrelin and motilin are cosecreted from a prominent endocrine cell population in the small intestine.
12732349 Plasma levels of motilin were studied in 16 untreated Celiac disease patients and in an age-matched control group of 18 healthy subjects by radioimmunoassay and by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC).
