A type of endocrine-like cell displaying all morphological features of protein secreting cells, has been found in the antro-pyloric mucosa of the stomach of mammals. Light and electron microscopy observations provide a sharp distinction of this cell from the 5-hydroxytryptamine-storing enterochromaffin cell. Its possible involvement in the secretion of a protein or peptide hormone is discussed.
