Brunner glands


[Johann C. Brunner, Swiss anatomist, 1653-1727]
Compound glands of the duodenum and upper jejunum that are similar to the pyloric glands of the stomach. They are embedded in the submucosa and lined with columnar epithelium. They secrete alkaline mucus which neutralizes the hydrochloric acid entering the duodenum from the stomach.
SYN: SEE: duodenal glands
