Summary Information: Gastric Glands

Gastric Glands: Gastric glands are located in the gastric mucosa in the stomach and produce digestive gastric juices and mucus. Gastric glands contain specialized cells that produce and secrete hydrochloric acid and enzymes, such as pepsin, to digest food.

Conditions that afflict gastric pits include stomach cancer, gastric ulcer, Helicobacter pylori infection and gastritis.
