• mammals
  • In the upper respiratory system of mammals there are submucosal glands in the airways, notably in the sinuses, the trachea and the bronchial tubes. (wikipedia.org)
  • 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)
  • 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
  • The p38δ isoform was shown to have robust expression both by Western blotting of acinar cells and immunofluorescence of the whole gland. (diva-portal.org)
  • Rare spontaneous myoepitheliomas arising from myoepithelial cells of various exocrine glands have been observed in The Jackson Laboratory substrains. (jax.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).

  • function
  • The primary function of the pineal gland is to secrete melatonin, which plays a role in regulating sleep cycles and in sexual development. (reference.com)
  • 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)
  • 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)
