Electron microscopic studies of human mixed saliva.


With foam components removed, mixed saliva from three donors were solidified in liquid nitrogen and sectioned, mounted, and fixed. Examination by transmission (TEM) and scanning (SEM) electron microscopy and energy-dispersive X-ray (EDAX) analysis were performed for paraformaldehyde-fixed sections, some of which were OsO4-postfixed. The TEM and certain SEM… (More)
