Description

LP16734-3   Parietal cell
Parietal cells are epithelial cells which secrete acid (HCl) and intrinsic factor into the stomach. Acid is required for proper digestion of food and Intrinsic factor is required for the absorption of Vitamin B12 in the small intestine. An inbalance of either will cause disease. Excessive acid production can cause peptic ulcers. Autoantibodies against the parietal cells or intrinsic factor cause either a reduction in vitamin B12 absorption (pernicious anemia) or Achlorydria, where the parietal cells are damaged, unable to produce enough gastric acid, causing an increased pH in the stomach, leading to digestive problems and an increase in the risk of gastroenteritis (an inflammation of the GI tract).
