The multifunctional, morphologically complex salivary glands are essential to the biological success of ticks and are intricately involved in the transmission of pathogens. They are innervated, and there is convincing evidence that dopamine is a neurotransmitter at the neuroeffector junction controlling fluid secretion. As feeding progresses, the rate of salivary fluid secretion increases greatly, enabling the ixodid tick to concentrate the bloodmeal by returning excess water and ions to the… CONTINUE READING
