Adenomere

Adenomere

Adenomere is the functional unit in salivary glands. Adenomeres are secretory subunits of lobules. They consist of all the secretory cells that release their products into a single intralobular duct.

An adenomere is composed of : a)Intercalated ducts : transport saliva to larger ducts. b)Striated ducts: contain a lot of mitochondria responsible for electrolyte and water transport during secreation. Simple, low columnar epithelium line these ducts. c)Glandular cells: synthesize glycoproteins.
