Salivary glands form their secretions by first elaborating an isotonic plasma-like primary fluid in the endpieces and then modifying the composition of this secretion during its passage along the gland duct system. We have studied the role of extracellular anions in both primary secretion and ductal modification with a recently developed technique for isolation and perfusion of the rabbit mandibular gland. Neither of the major extracellular anions (Cl- or HCO-3) is essential for primary fluid… CONTINUE READING
