Basic Physiology of Metabolism

Only 1% of pancreatic tissue is endocrine. This tissue is found in the Islets of langerhans. Surrounding the islets are adipose tissue deposits. The older you get, the more adipose tissue you have. There are four types of cell in the islets of langerhans, alpha, beta, delta and F. Alpha and beta secreted substances involved with control of glucose, delta and F cells control the level of action of the gastrointestinal tract.

Basic Gastric Physiology

There are basically two regions in the stomach, which contain two different lots of cells, which have different functions: Oxyntic glandular area – this contains oxyntic (parietal cells) that secrete gastric juice and intrinsic factor, as well as chief (peptic cells) that secrete pepsinogen Antral (lower) region – this contains G cells that secrete gastrin. G cells are also found in the duodenum.
