The postganglionic fibers join branches of the mandibular nerve (primarily the auriculotemporal and buccal nerves) to supply the parotid gland and nearby mucous glands with secretomotor fibers and also supply the vasculature with vasodilator fibers.
Secretomotor and vasodilator neurons regulate fluid and molecular exchange between gut lumen, tissue, and vasculature.
In the rat jejunum, for instance, mast cells released mediators in response to sensitized antigen and evoked secretomotor responses, which were suppressed by tetrodotoxin, indicating neural involvement [52].
Innervation of the parasympathetic component increases the secretomotor function, and innervation of the sensory component regulates the sensitivity of the nasal mucosa [4, 9].
Stylopharyngeus muscles are supplied by the motor component, and the parotid gland is supplied by the parasympathetic secretomotor supply.
Aside from the direct effect of [H.sub.2]S on ion channels and transporters within the epithelium, exogenous [H.sub.2]S indirectly stimulates chloride secretion by activating secretomotor neurons in human and guinea pig colon mucosa/submucosa preparations [44] (Figure 3).
