Ulcer-associated cell lineage
A cell line that develops in the gut in response to ulceration. Sometimes termed 'pyloric metaplasia'. It is thought to represent an epithelial regeneration pathway. Its initial differentiation is similar to that of Brunner's glands, but its method of cell renewal resembles that of gastric mucosa.
