Acid-related disorders represent a major healthcare concern. In recent years, our understanding of the physiologic processes underlying gastric acid secretion has improved notably. The identity of several apical ion transport proteins, which are necessary for acid secretion to take place, has been resolved. The recent developments have uncovered potential therapeutic targets for the treatment of acid-related disorders. This brief review provides an update on the mechanisms of gastric acid secretion, with a particular focus on apical ion transport.
