The effects of various secretagogues on the release of lingual lipase and amylase from rat lingual serous glands was examined in vitro and in vivo. After incubation, the media and tissues were assayed for lingual lipase and amylase activity to determine percent of secretion. In vitro secretion of lingual lipase and amylase stimulated by the cholinergic agonist, carbamylcholine chloride (carbachol), was 28.3 +/- 1.7, 48.0 +/- 3.2, and 55.9 +/- 2.4% and 18.1 +/- 1.7, 26.4 +/- 3.0, and 28.0 +/- 2… CONTINUE READING
