Caption: Salivary gland tissue, light micrograph. This is tissue from a normal mucous salivary gland. In humans there are three sets of paired salivary glands, one set below the tongue, one set by the lower jaw bones, and one set in front of the ears. They are exocrine glands, secreting saliva and mucus to help break down food in the mouth. This sample has been prepared using the hematoxylin and eosin stain (HES). Magnification: x140 when printed at 10 centimetres across.
