Adrenomedullin is a multifunctional peptide produced by a wide range of different cells and tissues. This study was designed to investigate whether adrenomedullin is present in human saliva and in salivary glands. It was expected that saliva may contain high concentrations of adrenomedullin, which has antimicrobial activity in vitro, which may have functional implications in the oral cavity. Saliva from the submandibular and parotid glands contained higher concentrations of adrenomedullin than… CONTINUE READING
