Immunoelectron microscopic study for histamine in the gastric enterochromaffin-like cells of rats treated with the proton pump inhibitor lansoprazole

Abstract

The enterochromaffin-like (ECL) cells of the gastric mucosa in animals play an important role in gastric acid secretion. They contain few granules and numerous secretory vesicles and microvesicles. They operate under the control of circulating gastrin. In the present study, we conducted an immunoelectron microscopic study for histamine (HA) in the ECL cells… (More)
