Correlation of parietal cell structure and function.


The apical surface of the gastric parietal cell is greatly expanded (5-10-fold) during maximal HCl secretion, as compared to the resting cell. The membrane recycling hypothesis has been proposed to account for the extensive, functionally related, rearrangement of cell membranes. Cytoplasmic membranes within the resting cell, the tubulovesicles, contain the… (More)
