How acid secrete in our body ?

Parietal cells are secrete the acid in our body .
In the surface of the cell there are more receptor are present like
      H2  Receptor
      Gastrin receptor
      Acetylcholine receptor
  H2 receptor are attached histamine then it stimulated adenyl cyclase enzyme . Adenyl cyclase is converted the ATP to CAMP.
When gastrin receptor is stimulated it influx ca+ ion .
When acetylcholine receptor is stimulated it also influx the ca+ ion .
All the CAMP and ca+ ion are produce the protein kinase .this protein kinase is directly act on the H+ K+ ATPase .to increase the acid secretion in our body.
That is the reason acidity lable is increase and PH descries  in our body.
