(redorbit.com)
  • That success depends in large part on proteins in their saliva, substances that make the victim's blood vessels dilate (for a better flow of blood), inhibit clotting, and prevent immediate pain and itching that might evoke a lethal slap. (redorbit.com)
  • By comparing saliva samples collected from 23 healthy men and women with recent protein maps of human blood and tears, researchers found a number of proteins related to the body's response to a variety of diseases. (redorbit.com)
