Abstract

The origin of sensory nerves that innervate the submandibular salivary gland was investigated in the rat. After application of wheat germ agglutinin-horseradish peroxidase to the cut endings of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nerve branches at the hilus of the gland, labeled cells were mainly found in the dorsal root ganglia and the trigeminal ganglion, respectively. The labeled neurons in these ganglia were of various sizes compared to unlabeled neurons, suggesting that the sensory nerves of the gland conduct various modalities of sensory information.
