The compound, racemose, innervated salivary glands of the cockroach Periplaneta americana closely resemble in structure and function the mammalian salivary glands (C.R. House, Biol. Rev. 55: 417-473, 1980). The quantitative distribution of Na, K, Cl, Ca, Mg, P, and S was investigated in the P-cells secreting isotonic NaCl and in duct lumens by using electron probe X-ray microanalysis of frozen-hydrated and frozen-dried cryosections. In the unstimulated glands in vitro the cells had (mmol/l cell… CONTINUE READING
