1978) did not find any mucus cells in the gills of Patella vulgata, whereas in Siphonaria capensis there were a larger number of these cells (De Villiers & Hodgson 1987), and in Austrocochlea constricta there were two types of mucus goblet cells (Eertman 1996).
These stimuli can change the type of the epithelium from one that is exclusively pseudostratified cylindrical ciliated with goblet cells (respiratory epithelium) to one that is either stratified cuboidal (epithelium with immature metaplasia), stratified squamous (epithelium with mature metaplasia), or in transition (transition-zone epithelium).
11,12) Similarly, Ogiya et al (13) do not require goblet cells to diagnose this condition but rather simply require the identification of columnar-lined esophagus (CLE).
Appendiceal endocrine tumors are separated into 2 groups: (1) classic appendiceal endocrine tumors, and (2) goblet cell carcinomas, which have a more aggressive history.
Importantly, 2 types of tumor cells composed the nests: neuroendocrine cells with moderate eosinophilic granular cytoplasm and a round or oval nucleus with a centrally located nucleolus, and admixed goblet cells (data not shown).

The sections with cardiac-type mucosa did not have goblet cells.
These assays may be helpful when the basal layer surrounding the metaplastic squamous epithelium stains for myoepithelial markers and the metaplastic mucosa, which is without goblet cells, does not.
