  • compound
  • Compound gland. (lecturio.com)
  • This compound does not originate in the tarsal gland itself, but rather it is extracted from the animal's urine by the tarsal hair tuft during the rub-urination process. (wikipedia.org)
  • tissues
  • When bred to a strain expressing Cre recombinase in the mammary gland and other secretory tissues (see Stock No. 003551 for example), this mutant mouse strain may be useful in studies of mammary epithelium. (jax.org)
  • protein
  • CF involves an anomalous function of the exocrine glands , caused by a mutation of a gene (cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator, CFTR) located on chromosome 7, which codes for a protein involved in ion transport through the cell membrane. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • intestine
  • A series of glands lie on the outer surface of the intestine, opening through collecting tubules into the stomach, although their precise function is unclear. (wikipedia.org)
  • lumen
  • At the dorsal and ventral aspect of the lumen are vomeronasal glands, which fill the vomeronasal lumen with fluid. (wikipedia.org)
  • cells
  • Rare spontaneous myoepitheliomas arising from myoepithelial cells of various exocrine glands have been observed in The Jackson Laboratory substrains. (jax.org)
  • compounds
  • The tarsal glands have a tuft of hair which is specially adapted to extract certain chemical compounds from the animal's urine. (wikipedia.org)
  • Males will fly around and mark spots with the pheromone compounds (Z)-9-hexadecenol and hexadecanal via their labial gland. (wikipedia.org)
  • include
  • These glands include the sudoriferous glands (located on the forehead, between the antlers and eyes), the preorbital glands (extending from the medial canthus of each eye), the nasal glands (located inside the nostrils), the interdigital glands (located between the toes), the preputial gland (located inside the foreskin of the penis), the metatarsal glands (located outside of the hind legs), and the tarsal glands (located inside of the hind legs).
