This explains the reason for the high zymogenic cell density observed in the stomach of pangolin.
The diameters and densities of parietal and zymogenic cells were measured from slides stained with H&E.
The diameter of the zymogenic cells were also observed to be largest in rat (1.
The stomach of the pangolin and rat are characterized with numerous gastric pits with the zymogenic cells located towards the base of the gland, the parietal cells along the length and the mucus-secreting cell at the luminal surface (Fig 1a & b).
Also, the zymogenic cells were observed to be well arranged at the base of the gastric gland.
