The morphology and composition of isolated acinar cells from the enlarged parotid glands of rats treated chronically with DL-isoproterenol were investigated and compared with isolated acinar cells from parotids of control untreated rats. Changes similar to those observed in parotid acinar cells from patients with cystic fibrosis were demonstrated.
