    Abstract

    Immunoreactivity for the calicium binding protein, calbinding D28k has been localized in enterochromaffin-like (ECL) cells of the human stomach. The reactivity was observed with three different antisera, raised against bovine brain, primate brain, and chicken intestinal calbindin. The ECL cells were closed endocrine cells located at the bases of the oxyntic glands. They were not found in other regions of the stomach. No other gastric endocrine cells were reactive with these antisera.
