What glands are found between Rugae?
The oxyntic glands, comprising 75% of the gastric glands , secrete HCl, intrinsic factor, mucus, and pepsinogen. The pyloric glands cover the gastric antrum and pylorus and contain G-cells that secrete gastrin into the circulation. The rugae are folds in the stomach lining.
Why is the trachea constructed with rings of cartilage fetal pig?
