The protective nature of the salivary pellicle
TLDR
This review focuses on the protective properties of the salivary pellicle, which has the potential to reduce the extent of enamel demineralisation upon acid challenge and is also considered in daily oral hygiene.
Protective Properties of Salivary Pellicles from Two Different Intraoral Sites on Enamel Erosion
TLDR
In conclusion, site–dependent differences of buccally and lingually in vivo formed 24–hour pellicles have minor importance concerning the pellicle–induced protection of the enamel surface against erosive changes.
Protective Influence of Experimentally Formed Salivary Pellicle on Enamel Erosion
TLDR
The results support the general conclusion that salivary pellicle effectively protects enamel surface against short-term erosion in organic acids.
Saliva and Dental Pellicle-A Review
TLDR
Improved pellicle harvesting procedures and analysis by state-of-the-art proteomics with mass spectroscopy approaches promise to make major inroads into the characterization of enamel pellicles.
Influence of in vivo Formed Salivary Pellicle on Enamel Erosion
TLDR
It is concluded that the in vivo salivary pellicle can resist the acidic action to some extent and provides protection to the underlying enamel surface against erosive destruction caused by short–term action of citric acid.
Enzymes in the acquired enamel pellicle.
TLDR
It has been demonstrated that amylase, lysozyme, carbonic anhydrases, glucosyltransferases and fructosyl transferase are immobilized in an active conformation in the pellicle layer formed in vivo.
A comprehensive method for determination of fatty acids in the initial oral biofilm (pellicle)
TLDR
This study demonstrates, for the first time, a procedure based on a combination of innovative specimen generation and convenient sample preparation with sensitive GC-MS analysis for the determination of the fatty acid profile of the initial oral biofilm.

The carbohydrate composition of experimental salivary pellicles.
TLDR
The data strongly suggest that there are present in both submandibular and parotid saliva similar glycoproteins that are selectively deposited onto etched enamel as the initial pellicle.
Lipid composition of the gastric mucous barrier in the rat.
TLDR
The lipid composition of the "mucous barrier" of rat stomach was investigated and indicates that mucous barrier in addition to mucins contains considerable quantities of lipids of which glyceroglucolipids are the most prominent components.
Lipid Composition of Human Parotid Salivary Gland Stones
TLDR
The parotid gland stone matrix constitutes 20.2% of the stone dry weight and contains 8.5% of lipids, and phosphatidylethanolamine and diphosphatidylglycerol are the principal constituents of the phospholipid fraction.
Lipid composition of marmoset saliva.
TLDR
The results indicate that marmoset saliva, in comparison to that of human, contains twice as much of total lipids and exhibits an elevated level of phospholipids, and glycolipids.

TLDR
It is suggested that in the lipid-protein complex of SAM, two different proteins are present; a hydrophobic one in lipids and more hydrophilic ones in the water phase that have a close association with the former.
