Oops, sorry, i forgot to reply!

I was being sarcastic in my post - i said I was doing biology earlier and someone had a go at me for not being good enough to do medicine and that's why i was doing biology :confused:

it wasn't an attack on you, i was referring to what this person might say

Writing this slightly drunk but... don't worry about wannabe medics. They're where you wanna be and so many people have that image of stuck up people being at certain uni's that there comes a point where you have to let them have their stupid ideas.

Can soemone who knows more than me please give me an example of a non-glandular endocrine cell type in the digestive system? I'm not down with physiology.

what do you mean by non-glandular? All endocrine 'glands' are non-ductless so aren't typical of what people think of as glands (i.e. in the exocrine acinar/tubular way).

Are you being non-specific and including target cells of the endocrine system?These would be glandless as they're the receptor sites...

Autonomic nerves are the only real non-glandular endocrine cells, as they release catecholamines (adrenalin and nor adrenalin), but again, somewhat of a grey area as to whether you include nerves in this classification!

Not sure how well this will come out as it's taken off our 'lectures' intranet site:

3.Glands
are epithelial structures which discharge a secretory product
exocrine glands discharge their secretory product via a duct onto an epithelial surface
endocrine glands secrete hormones directly into the bloodstream
are composed of highly specialised epithelial cells, the appearance of which reflects the nature of their secretory product and mode of secretion

Exocrine glands
are formed of ducts and secretory portions
ducts can be straight (simple glands) or branched (compound glands)
secretory portions can be tubular or acinar

discharge their secretory product by
exocytosis (eccrine secretion)
releasing unbroken, membrane-bound vesicles (apocrine secretion)
releasing whole secretory cells with subsequent cell lysis (holocrine secretion).

Endocrine glands.
consist of clumps or cords of secretory cells surrounded by a rich vascular network.
produce hormones.
discharge their hormones directly into the bloodstream.

my uncle is a very important man, but i dont do what he tells me to, i just do things to make my self better than you cretins
haha, reminds me of..

My father's an important doctor

Something about their stride suggests a confidence that the common folk will never quite be able to attain. They even drink coffee in a "you can't stop me--my father's quite well known" kind of way. This group tend to be taller than the average student through a combination of appropriate nourishment, inbreeding, and the rack that their parents stretched them out on whenever they achieved less than an A grade. If ever there is any trouble or poor marks in an exam, their parents will simply visit the dean, conduct various secret handshakes and rounds of golf, and the matter will be behind them. These medics are able, then, to exude a casualness bordering on the downright sloppy. Despite this, you have nothing to fear from these people and they should be welcomed into your inner circle, especially when it's time to get the drinks in.
Interesting fact: the importance of the parent is directly proportional to the scruffiness of the student. The children of most professors are, in fact, no more than untucked shirts.

LMAO!!! Very good - and very true!

If you bumped into one of our best clinical lecturers, you would probably mistake him for a vagrant (harsh, but true - except he doesn't smell like one). You can tell when he has a grant meeting or similar, cos he doesn't half scrub up well!
