We have reinvestigated the morphology of the salivary glands in the cockroach, Periplaneta americana, by light, electron, and confocal laser scanning microscopy. All secretory acini have a uniform structural layout. They consist of three cell types: peripheral cells, central cells, and duct cells. One pair of peripheral cells forms the base of each acinus. The central cells, arranged concentrically in a fourfold symmetry around the most proximal part of the acinar ducts, lie next downstream. In… CONTINUE READING
