The major physiological function of parotid acinar cells is the production of saliva, a watery fluid containing electrolytes and a complex mixture of proteins (Cook et al., 1994; Melvin et al., 2005). The driving force for fluid and electrolyte secretion is the vectoral, trans-epithelial movement of Cl. Cl is accumulated intracellularly via the concerted effort of several transporters, and after gustatory and olfactory stimulation, Cl exits into the lumen of the gland (Cook et al., 1994; Melvin… CONTINUE READING
