In some animals spindle-shaped cells occupy the center of the alveolus of the pancreas and are known as the centroacinar cells of Langerhans. These cells are commonly known as duct cells, and secrete an aqueous bicarbonate solution under stimulation by the hormone secretin. They also secrete mucin.
