Bacteria & its products etc. By Nakamura & Slots (), enzyme activity in whole saliva & parotid saliva in patients adult periodontitis, -increased levels of alkaline phosphatase, elastase, β -glucoronidase & other aminopeptides. 68 8/19/   SALIVA Saliva is a wonderful, marvelously equipped fluid to protect and preserve the oral tissues. According to stedmans medical dictionary 26th edition. Saliva is clean, tasteless, odourless slightly acidic vicious fluid, consisting of secretions from the parotid, sublingual, submandibular salivary glands and the mucous glands of the oral cavity.

  The salivary glands are divided into the major and minor salivary glands.. The major glands are much larger in size and are a collection of exocrine tissue that secretes as a whole into a salivary duct rather than acting individually and therefore end up producing a much larger amount of saliva per day than the minor glands.; The main role of the minor glands is to lubricate the walls of the Clinical relations: Cysts, inflammation, tumors. About 85% of salivary gland tumors occur in the parotid glands, followed by the submandibular and minor salivary glands, and about 1% occur in the sublingual glands. About 75 to 80% are benign, slow-growing, movable, painless, usually solitary nodules beneath normal skin or mucosa.

  Free and esterifed cholesterol were determined in parotid fluid collected from 19 individuals by encapsulation of Stenson's duct in the oral ± (SD) μg/ ml and cholesterol esters averaged ± (SD) μg/ ml. Two assays are described for the measurement of cholesterol in parotid saliva. Lipophilic material was extracted with ether-ethanol (3∶1).Cited by: 2.   Saliva is a thick, colorless, and glistening liquid consisting of about 98% to 99% water. Mucus produces the glistening appearance and causes the liquid to have a thicker texture than pure water. Saliva also contains enzymes and other proteins as well as salts and buffering agents to keep the pH at the correct s:

THERE is a paucity of data on the nature and amounts of lipid in parotid and sub- maxillary saliva and by: 7–8%, respectively, of the whole saliva flow.

The subman - dibular gland produces 60% of the unstimulated whole saliva (UWS) flow. When the salivary flow is stimulat-ed, the parotid gland contribution increases by 10–15%, while the remaining salivary glands do not significantly increase saliva secretion.3,4,6,7 The fluids secreted by the.

The lipid content of parotid saliva from light calculus-formers was ± mg/lOOmI of saliva, and from heavy calculus-formers x 4 ± mg/ ml of saliva. Amalia Slomiany. by: Stimulated parotid saliva and stimulated whole saliva were collected from the subjects.

After centrifugation, each saliva sample was analyzed for the concentrations of lipids and proteins and for the compositions of lipids and fatty acids.

The lipid and protein contents in parotid saliva increased in proportion to increase of the flow by: Organic composition of saliva proteins Proteins comprise the bulk of the organic content of saliva but identification of each of them has been more difficult.

In studies on human parotid saliva, the presence of at least 20 separate protein fractions has been reported, while. Lipid composition of human parotid salivary gland stones. Slomiany BL, Murty VL, Aono M, Slomiany A, Mandel ID.

These functions will be addressed during the Size: 2MB. Start studying Chapter 33 Salivary Glands. Learn vocabulary, terms, and more with flashcards, games, and other study tools. The two parotid glands are major salivary glands wrapped around the mandibular ramus in humans.

These are largest of the salivary glands, secreting saliva to facilitate mastication and swallowing, and amylase to begin the digestion of starches. It is the serous type of gland which secretes alpha-amylase (also known as ptyalin). It enters the oral cavity via the parotid :   Saliva from parotid glands plays a role in taste perception.

Parotid saliva is also stimulated by tastants. The aim of this work is to investigate the effects of different tastants on the parotid salivary response in six subjects. Five tastants were given in different concentrations in solution and held in the mouth for 10 s. The flow rate, protein concentration, and pH of secreted parotid Cited by: Salivary Gland Disorders one major salivary gland, most commonly the parotid,4 and is common in medically debilitated, hospitalized, or postoperative Massage of saliva from ductCited by: - % of daily saliva output is in response to stimuli such as taste, smell, masticatory forces (chewing) - in response to stimuli ( acid), parotid flow rate increases -parotid contribution is increased and it can be greater than submandibular.

yses of various salivary constituents is the rate considered an important factor. Determinations of salivary proteins with the currently accepted methods are rare.

Organic solids in mixed and parotid saliva are reported by Hubbell (2) and others (3, 4). saliva the secretion of salivary glands, consisting of a clear usually slightly acid aqueous fluid of variable composition.

It moistens the oral cavity, prepares food for swallowing, and initiates the process of digestion Saliva the clear, viscid secretion of the salivary glands, with a weakly acid or weakly alkaline reaction (pH –).

A human. The parotid secretory organs contribute a higher proportion of the stirred flow, which is serous and watery. Figure (below) shows the per centums each secretory organ contributes to whole mouth saliva ry composingThe mean salivary composing is shown in Fig.

There are three pairs of major salivary glands found in and around the mouth and throat - called the parotid, submandibular and sublingual glands.

The parotid glands are located in front of and beneath the ear. A duct, called Stensen's duct, drains saliva from the parotid gland into the mouth, at /5().The parotid, submandibular, sublingual and minor salivary glands all contribute to what is termed whole-mouth saliva.

Not only does the secretion from the different glands vary in composition and volume to a given stimulus, but also the saliva produced by a single gland is variable. I was informed by my doctors that the cancer that I had was an agressive one so they had to give me a high dose () of the RAI The RAI was done in August and I was in the hospital for 2 days.

For the past month and 1/2 I have been getting swelling in the Parotid Gland (Saliva) and am having this salty taste secret from the ducts.
