The question is: which structure of the stomach allows greater distension of food storage? The answer to that question depends on the type of food you are eating. The stomach can be divided into two main sections – the Submucosa and the Epithelial lining. This article will explain what each section does, and which one allows greater distension of food. It will also explain how the digestive juices in each compartment affect each other.


The stomach is made up of two layers: the mucosa and the submucosa. The latter layer is made up of fibroblasts and collagen. It also contains lymphatics, nerves, and ganglion cells associated with the autonomic nervous system. In addition, the submucosa has lymphoid follicles and aggregates.

Epithelial lining

The stomach has two distinct layers – the body and the pylorus. The body contains the cardia gland, which is located near the esophageal orifice and is lined with a smaller population of mucous-secreting cells. The pylorus is the distal third of the stomach, which terminates at the beginning of the duodenum. The body contains many mucous-secreting cells, including ECL and G-cells.

Mucinous lining

The stomach mucosa folds when it fills with food. It contains gastric pits and glands. The gastric pits in the pyloric region are deeper and are lined with chief cells. The mucosal lining of the stomach is similar to that of horses. It is similar in conformation, but has greater granularity. Both the heart and esophagus contain mucinous tissue.


The gastrin receptor has been associated with gastric health and disease. This hormone affects ECL cells and parietal cells in the gastric fundus. It has other roles as well, affecting the immune system, and its CCKB receptor is found on monocytes, mast cells, and phagocytes. Gastrin is a member of the CCK receptor family. It binds to both types of receptors.


The CHA structure of the stomach allows for greater distension of the abdominal cavity, allowing the stomach to store more food. The organ is divided into three separate layers, the inner oblique layer, the middle circular layer, and the pyloric sphincter. Each of these layers allows the stomach to store different amounts of food and liquid. By using a combination of these layers, the stomach is able to store more food and beverages than is normally needed for digestion.


The stomach has a unique structure with multiple layers and requires an abundant blood supply to function properly. Its five distinct cell types function at high metabolic rates and have multiple branches. The splenic artery and the celiac artery branch directly from the aorta. The splenic artery also branches into the left gastric artery and the anterior superior pancreaticoduodenal artery.


The structure of the stomach is composed of three main layers: the inner oblique layer, which secretes the gastric juices, and the middle circular layer, which is concentric with the longitudinal axis of the stomach and thickens in the region of the pylorus, which regulates the output of the stomach into the duodenum. The outer longitudinal layer lies between the two muscular layers and is characterized by several folds and rugae, which allow distension of the layers when food is entering.
