goblet cells
contain large, lightly staining granules that fill the apical portion of the cell. nucleus at base. synthesize and secrete mucins. In intestines and respiratory systems - apical release
enteroendocrine cells
small, dense core secretory granules that fill the basal portion of cell. synthesize and secrete hormones. In intestine, respiratory systems - Basal release
parenchyma
functional portion of the gland
stroma
structural portion of the gland - doesn't play a part in secretion or transport!
exocrine glands
In liver, pancreas. cells will differentiate, but will still connect to original site by duct; apical release
endocrine cells
connection to the epithelium has been broken - secrete right into the bloodstream (basal release)
merocrine secretion
conservation of membrane (exocytosis)
apocrine
secretion includes apical part of the cell
holocrine
entire cell is lost during secretion
autocrine
secretory product stimulates receptor on same cell
paracrine
secretion involves neighboring cells
serous
type of cellular secretion - enzymatic
