Physiopathology of parotid cell energetics
Attention was recently drawn to the production of D-glucose by salivary glands and its concentration in the saliva of both normal and diabetic subjects. Likewise, the identity and expression of selected transporters involved in the handling of the hexose by salivary glands were recently investigated in both normal and diabetic rats. In consideration of this information, the present report aims at providing an integrated review on the physiopathology of parotid cell energetics.
