The effect of starvation on the diurnal variation of amylase secretion from rat parotid glands.

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of starvation on the cellular function of rat parotid glands in relation to the diurnal variation of amylase secretion from the tissue. Salivary amylase secreted from the glands of rats starved for 24 h showed diurnal variation, with two peaks at 13 and 21 h. The peak at 21 h was more notable than that… (More)
