Abstract

Selye et al. (1961) and Brown-Grant (1961) demonstrated that isoproterenol (IPR) elicited enlargement of submandibular and parotid gland in rats and mice. Barka (1965) verified that the drug stimulates DNA synthesis and mitotic activity in these organs. IPR, as a sialagogue, causes a depletion of secretory material in the salivary glands followed by a period of resynthesis of proteins (Byrt, 1966; Schirley and Mills, 1971).
