Gastric mucosa

Definition

The mucous membrane lining the interior of stomach

Gastric mucosa is made up of three layers: epithelium, lamina propria, and muscularis mucosae.

The glands and gastric pits are found in the gastric mucosa, and therefore, this layer is associated with secretion and protecting the stomach from the proteolysis and low pH.
