Salivary gland morphology after alpha-adrenergic and cholinergic stimulation. An ultrastructural study.

Abstract

The submandibular glands in 100 rats were subjected to different sialagogues: carbachol, clonidine, noradrenalin, and cyclocytidine. The morphological effects of these drugs were compared ultrastructurally. Clonidine, which is an alpha-2-agonist affected mostly the mucous cells, with formation of cytoplasmic vacuoles between the mucous droplets… (More)
