Academic Journal
The article presents a study on the source of salivary neuraminidase. The difference between neuraminidase in whole saliva and neuraminidase in submandibular and sublingual secretions is discussed. The ability of neuraminidase to split sialic acid from protein complexes at the cell membrane surface is reviewed.

    An encyclopedia entry for "salivary glands" is presented. These are three pairs of glands that secrete saliva through ducts, into the mouth. The parotid glands, which are the largest, are located in each side of the jaw, below and in front of the ears. The sublingual glands are located on the...

    The major salivary glands are usually considered as located in different spaces: the sublingual gland in the oral floor, the submandibular gland in the submandibular area and the parotid gland in the parotid area. But in the truth, there is no anatomic separation between these different salivary...
