Stimulation by norepinephrine in physiological concentration was used on the dorsal skin of the Argentine tree-frog Phyllomedusa hypochondrialis azurea to trigger contraction of myoepithelial cells encircling the serous glands and provoke secretory release. This hylid species possesses two kinds of serous cutaneous glands, producing secretory granules or vesicles (type Ia and Ib serous units, respectively), along with serous-derived glands which synthesise lipids and store them in complex… CONTINUE READING
