It is not known whether the mechanisms involved in amylase release in submandibular and parotid glands are similar. Here, the participation of different signalling pathways in amylase release by the parotid and submandibular glands of the male rat was compared by studying the secretory response after beta-adrenergic stimulation. The beta-adrenergic agonist isoproterenol induced an increase of cAMP in both salivary glands, but while in the parotid it triggered amylase release, in the… CONTINUE READING
