Holocrine is a classification of exocrine glands in the study of Histology.
Additional recommended knowledge
Holocrine secretions are produced within the cell followed by the rupture of the plasma membrane, thus releasing the cellular contents into the lumen.
The sebaceous gland is an example of a holocrine gland, because its product of secretion (sebum) is released with remnants of dead cells.
