Stimulation of pancreatic acinar cell secretion of zymogens, in response to amino acids and fatty acids in the duodenum;

Potentiation of the primary effects of secretin;

Stimulation of contraction of smooth muscle of gall bladder, for which it is the major hormonal regulator;

Relaxation of the sphincter of Oddi, which allows bile to enter the duodenum;

Stimulation of contraction of pylorus to slow gastric emptying;
