The fine structure of the secretory units of the mouse submandibular gland was studied according to the developmental sequence. The embryonic submandibular gland consists of terminal tubules and ducts. Myoepithelium is associated only with the terminal tubules, and the cells of the primary intercalated ducts show characteristics of the young striated duct cells.
