InVivo imaging study for the regulation of salivary gland functions
The researchers unearthed surprising findings in the form of the tissue-wide synchronization of Ca2+ oscillations with the perfusion of acetylcholine. Results also suggests the possibility that the activations of mAChR enhance salivary secretions with some changes in gene expression.
