Human oxyntic gastric mucosa harbours 6 types of endocrine cells: enterochromaffin-like (ECL) cells, enterochromaffin (EC) cells, somatostatin (D) cells, and cells with an unknown secretory product (P cells, D1 cells and X (A-like) cells). In the present study, intracellular localization and granular content of chromogranin A (CGA) in these cells have been investigated by electron microscopic immunohistochemistry. The content of CGA in granules of the various types of endocrine cells was… CONTINUE READING
