Hypertrophy of parotid and submandibular glands, and elevated phospholipid content per gland in both were induced. However, phospholipid content per tissue weight increased only in the parotid gland. Sublingual gland phospholipids were unaffected with regard to the gland weight and phospholipid content; phospholipid class compositions were altered in each of the three glands, typically an increase of phosphatidylcholine and decreases of sphingomyelin and phosphatidic acid.
