Effects of sialagogues on the syntheses of polyamines and DNA in murine parotid gland.


When rat parotid explants were cultured on siliconized lens paper floating on chemically defined 199 medium, all of sialagogues tested increased ornithine decarboxylase activity, which was roughly proportional to the amylase released into the culture medium. S-Adenosylmethionine decarboxylase and DNA synthesis were also induced by isoproterenol, methoxamine… (More)
