• Saliva
  • Lactoferrin is a globular glycoprotein with a molecular mass of about 80 kDa that is widely represented in various secretory fluids, such as milk, saliva, tears, and nasal secretions. (wikipedia.org)
  • mechanism
  • There are two main types of sweat glands that differ in their structure, function, secretory product, mechanism of excretion, anatomic distribution, and distribution across species: Eccrine sweat glands are distributed almost all over the human body, in varying densities, with the highest density in palms and soles, then on the head, but much less on the trunk and the extremities. (wikipedia.org)
  • This high rate of turnover is a protective mechanism designed to protect the epithelial lining of the stomach from both the proteolytic action of pepsin and the acid produced by parietal cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • effects
  • Thus, notwithstanding the good agreement between left and right flow rates, a high variation in parotid flow rates has to be considered when planning clinical trials evaluating the effects of treatment on salivary gland functioning. (mendeley.com)
  • Optimization of substituted benzimidazoles and their antisecretory effects were studied on the newly discovered proton pump to obtain higher pKa values of the pyridine, thereby facilitating accumulation within the parietal cell and increasing the rate of acid-mediated conversion to the active mediate.

  • plasma
  • PRL secretory rates were derived from plasma concentrations by deconvolution. (physiology.org)
  • The estimation of plasma and/or urinary steroids before and during ACTH administration reveals the responsiveness of the adrenal cortex to ACTH (ACTH is infused intravenously for 8 hours at the rate of 5 U/hour and plasma levels of cortisol are estimated prior to and during the infusion).

  • further
  • Literature from anaesthetic screenings led attention to the potential antiviral compound pyridylthioacetamide which after further examination pointed the focus on an anti-secretory compound with unknown mechanisms of action called timoprazole. (wikipedia.org)
  • distribution
  • Models that attempt to explain the cessation of fusion using changes in the distribution of calcium thresholds arising from the rate of calcium delivery and/or adaptation are not applicable to this system, and thus cannot be general. (rupress.org)
