1. The composition of human saliva secreted in response to sour lemon drops (S.L.D.), and pilocarpine, was studied.2. At a given flow rate, pilocarpine-stimulated submandibular and parotid saliva contained less sodium and potassium and an equivalent amount of inorganic phosphate, and parotid saliva also contained more calcium and protein than did the corresponding types of S.L.D.-stimulated saliva.3. Prolonged S.L.D. stimulation did not cause a depletion in the protein concentration of either… CONTINUE READING
