The substances that animals secrete at epithelial surfaces include not only small molecules and ions delivered by exocytosis, but also a wide variety of materials in membrane-bound form. The latter include mucous granules of pulmonate molluscs, milk fat globules, and products of apocrine and holocrine secretion. Contents include hydrophobic entities (e.g., lipids, hydrocarbons), protective substances (e.g., mucus), and potentially injurious substances (e.g., digestive enzymes, toxins).
