This is a photograph of a portion of a gland in the antrum of the stomach. The antrum is important because the cells that reside in these glands control the release of acid from the more anterior stomach and also direct the release of enzymes from the pancreas that are needed for absorption as food moves into the intestine. This control point is also one of two regions of the stomach that are highly susceptible to cancer.
