The mature rat parotid gland shows hardly any cell bodies of myoepithelial cells around the acini, only a few cell processes being visible. However, in the early postnatal period, the rat parotid gland shows many myoepithelial cell bodies around the acini, including the intercalated ducts. In order to clarify the reason for the disappearance of(More)

Mucous cells have been known to occur in the terminal portions of the parotid gland in a few species of mammals during a limited period of their development. The aim of this study was to examine the occurrence and features of mucous cells in the parotid gland of the infant Japanese macaque. Light microscopy revealed that mucous cells in the macaque parotid(More)
