What are the different salivary glands present in man? Mention their main functions.
Super User Accepted Answer Pending Moderation
There are there pairs of salivary glands, viz. parotids, sub – maxillary and sublingual, which secretes saliva, a water fluid in the mouth. Saliva contains a starch digesting enzyme – the mucin, which helps to lubricate the food for swallowing. In some animals, the starch digesting enzyme tyalin acts on the starch and converts into maltose, isomaltose and limit dextrin in the alkaline medium.
