Lumen and Stomach Glands

Post by Seto's Darkness » Tue Aug 09, 2005 9:16 am

Why is the orientation of the secretory granules arranged like they are surrounding the lumen of the stomach gland? What is its connection to the structure-function of the gland? Thanks!!! ^___^

Because the secretory granules carry digestive enzymes produced by the gland. They will secrete their contents by exocytosis into the stomach lumen and mixed with nutrients to digest it.
