Exocrine glands include. sweat (apocrine and eccrine) glands salivary glands mammary ceruminous lacrimal (tear) glands sebaceous glands mucous glands. The liver and pancreas are both exocrine and endocrine. Cells of these glands may secrete their product via one of three mechanisms: merocrine apocrine holocrine. The main difference between exocrine and endocrine glands is the absence of ducts in the endocrine glands. Therefore, the latter are often called ductless glands, ‘glandulae sine ductibus’. Because they have no means of conveying secretory products away from the gland, the secretion enters the circulation via the blood vessels richly Cited by: 1. The exocrine product of prostate glands is produced by secretory luminal cells, which line the lumen of the glandular acini. Secretory cells are cuboidal or pseudo-columnar and rest on a layer of basal cells over the basement membrane. They secrete a variety of proteins and products into the lumen of the glands at the apex of the cell (Forest. Exocrine pancreas Secretory units. The exocrine component of the pancreas makes up about 98% of the pancreatic tissue. It is comprised of densely packed serous acinar (tubuloacinar) glands. These glands are called pancreatic acini, which represent the secretory units of the pancreas.
Exocrine glands are glands that secretes substances onto an epithelial surface by way of a duct. Examples of exocrine glands include sweat, salivary, mammary, ceruminous, lacrimal, sebaceous, prostate and ne glands are one of two types of glands in the human body, the other being endocrine glands, which secrete their products directly into the bloodstream. Chapter 12 - Exocrine Glands. Exocrine glands secrete their products onto the surface of an epithelium.. Exocrine glands can be classified in various ways: Organization - unicellular or multicellular Structural - nature of the duct system (simple or compound) and shape of secretory units (tubular, acinar (or alveolar), tubuloalveolar)Product secreted - serous (proteins), mucous (mucus) or. the secretory cell itself becomes the secretory product (the whole cell or bulk contents of cytoplasm are released) (ex. sebaceous glands) Apocrine Glands apical portion of cell cleaves from the cell resulting in release of a portion of the apical cytoplasm and cell membrane along with product.

Exocrine glands are classified as simple if they have a single unbranched duct and compound if they have a branched duct. If the duct and secretory portion are of uniform diameter, the gland is called tubular. If the secretory cells form a dilated sac, the gland is called acinar and the sac is an acinus31 (ASS-ih-nus), or alveolus32 (AL-vee-OH. View main book page. Table of Contents.

Exocrine glands are cellular sub-structures, organs, in a body that provide a system to secrete substances out and external to the body. They are distinct from the other type of gland, endocrine, in that exocrine gland secretions end up external to the body, while endocrine secretions go into the bloodstream/internal.
