...Bettina Schewe; Wolfgang Blenau; Bernd Walz SUMMARY Salivary gland cells of the blowfly Calliphora vicina have a vacuolar-type H + -ATPase (V-ATPase) that lies in their apical membrane and energizes the secretion of a KCl-rich primary saliva upon stimulation with serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine...

.... The tubular salivary glands in the blowfly Calliphora vicina secrete a KCl-rich saliva when they are stimulated with the neurohormone,serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine; 5-HT)( Berridge, 1970 ; Oschman and Berridge, 1970 ). A vacuolar-type proton ATPase (V-ATPase) in the apical membrane of the secretory...
