Cross Section of Stomach Wall:

The wall of the stomach has four layers. The innermost layer is the mucosa (stomach lining). This contains glands that produce enzymes and acid used in digestion. It also protects the stomach lining from the acid. After this is the submucosa layer, followed by a layer of muscle. The outer layer of the stomach is a strong membrane called the serosa. Gastric glands consist of mucous cells, lipase secreating cells, parietal cells and zygomenic cells
