What will happen if mucus is not secreted by the gastric glands?
Asked by devansh verma | 3rd Jun, 2012, 06:09: PM
The alkaline mucous layer protects epithelial cells of stomach wall against the acids and enzymes in the gastric lumen.
If mucus is not secreted by the gastric glands, then the hydrochloric acid secreted by the glands will digest or corrode the walls of the stomach.
