tubuloazinous gland

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

With tubuloazinös (from latin tubus "tube"; from Latin acinus "berry", "grape") are in the histology referred glands which both a tubular and acinar tissue architecture possess, therefore representing a hybrid of the two types.


Tubuloazinöse glands are mostly from the exocrine secretion styp and come from a branched tubule system of glandular ducts. However, all gland ducts end in acinous (that is, berry-shaped) glandular end pieces which, in contrast to tubuloalveolar glands , have a narrow lumen .
