Abstract

The handling of Ca by the rat parotid gland was investigated using micropuncture, microperfusion, and microanalytical techniques. Concentrations of Ca were measured in salivary fluid from intercalated, lobular and main ducts, and net transductal fluxes of Ca and water were calculated during stimulation of secretion with acetylcholine, pilocarpine, and DLisoproterenol.
