  7. In sub mucosa, muscularis mucosa present differentiated into outer longidutinal and inner circular muscles.
  8. Sub mucosa also consits of mast cells, fibroblast and histocytes.
  9. Mucosa forms folds as rugae that is converted into gestric glands.
  10. Open into lumen by gastric pits. In each gland body and neck 2 parts and clear.
  11. Goblet cells present in neck only to secrete mucous.
  12. Body is made up of chief cells or zymogenic cells to secrete enzymes.
  13. In body few oxyntic cells or pariatal cells present to secrete HCl.
  14. Argentoflin cells are also noted, perhaps endocrine in nature.
  15. In Ruminent (cattle, goat, sheep, camel) Compound stomach present having Rumen. (largest pouch), reticulum (honey comb), omassum, (absent in camel & deer) and abomasum.
