Intragastric infusion of amino acids causes the release from the liver of a factor with stimulatory effect on smooth muscle. The effect of liver vein plasma ultrafiltrate was tested on isolated preparations of rat fundus. The ultrafiltrates collected after amino acid infusion had a 3-5 times higher stimulatory effect on smooth muscle contraction than those collected from control plasma. The active principle was isolated, purified by different chromatographic procedures and identified as 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin). No other compound with contractile effect on smooth muscle was detected.
