In other species, the epiglottis, with gustatory papillae
, touches the velum, creating a direct connection between the nasopharynx and the larynx with little or no communication with the oropharynx.
Comparative scanning electron microscopic study of the gustatory papillae in two species oof domesctic animal (Equi caballus, Bos taurus).
Scanning electron microscopic studies of developing gustatory papillae in humans.
The presence of taste pores in fungiform and circumvallated papillae clearly suggests that they are gustatory papillae
, as shown in other species (Unsal et al.).
Inside the oral cavity the gustatory papillae can realize the quimioreception through the contact with the saliva and other dissolved particles (Douglas, 2002).
The vallate papillae are the greatest gustatory papillae and collect saliva from epithelium to the terminal furrows (Yasuda & Tomita, 2002).
