Unformatted text preview: 1. Parasympathetic nervous system stimulation causes release of acetylcholine (ACH) on surface of salivary gland cells. 2. ACH causes increase in membrane permeability to Ca++. 3. Ca++ causes secretory vesicles to fuse with cell membrane and break open on outer surface, emptying contents into lumen of salivary gland (exocytosis). 5 Process, cont. 4. ACH stimulation causes Na+ transport out of salivary cells by active transport (with ATP), Cl- follows passively, water moves by osmosis. 5. As water containing ions and other secretions moves toward mouth, K+ actively exchanged for Na+, HCO3- actively exchanged for Cl-. 6. Role of SNS--vary blood Fow, esp. decrease blood Fow Rates of secretion 0.5 ml per minute all the time except during sleep, when it drops below that value. Just prior to or during eating--8-10x higher than normal value Totals/day = 1-1.5 liters/day (cows = 250 liters/day)...
