Kallikrein and Vasodilatation in the Salivary Gland

  • M. Schachter

Abstract

Although evidence for the existence of vasodilator nerve fibers was first presented by Ludwig in 1851, this basic fact is still in dispute. Ludwig, and later Claude Bernard in 1872, demonstrated the remarkably pronounced vasodilatation that occurs in the submaxillary gland when the chorda tympani nerve is stimulated. Both these early authors assumed that this vasodilatation was a “direct” action of the nerve fibers on the blood vessels.
