Pear-shaped prostatic gland cells which surround the ejaculatory duct of Paramphistomum and Paradistomoides, secrete two types of products: (i) granules which are cytochemically complex containing lipids, proteins and polysaccharides (1:2, glycol groups) and (ii) globules which contain phospholipids only. The cytoplasm of these cells, in addition to high acid phosphatase activity, also contains RNA, proteins and polysaccharides.
