Studies of the morphology and composition of isolated parotid acinar cells from patients with cystic fibrosis were conducted. It was demonstrated that these cells are larger than cells from controls and have higher concentrations of amylase, Ca, and Na and lower concentrations of K which is suggestive of functional abnormalities in homeostatic and secretory processes.
