A conspicuous feature of apocrine secretory cells is their “decapitation” mode of secretion whereby an apical cap, formed at the luminal border of the apocrine cells, separates off from the cell and is discharged into the lumen. Another typical feature of these cells is the presence of intracytoplasmic small, brightly eosinophilic granules (zymogen granules) in a supranuclear location. Zymogen granules are PAS-positive and diastase resistant, and represent lysosomes that contain sialomucin, lipid, and iron.
