1975, 1982). The higher capacity of rat ducts to secrete K+ and HC0 3 - compared with rabbit ducts is ascribed to a greater density of the K+ IH+ antiports over the Na +IH+ antiports. It is also postulated that in a way similar to the cortical collecting ducts, variations in the body acid-base status would be reflected in the ductal HC03 - and K+ secretion and distribution of dark cells in rat extralobular ducts (Knauf et al. 1983). Apart from the influence of mineralocorticoids and the salt and acid-base statue, the salivary ducts are under autonomic nervous control.
