Rugae The folds of the stomach that allow for the stomach to expand when necessary.
Regions of the stomach 1) Cardiac region, fundic region, body region, and pyloric region.
Gastric glands Glands found in the cells that line the inside of the stomach. These glands secrete gastric juices that contain enzymes, hydrochloric acid, and mucus.
Intrinsic factors A glycoprotein released by stomach cells. Intrinsic factors prevent the vitamin, B12, from being destroyed by stomach acid.
