We have now compiled the most comprehensive gene expression atlas for different salivary gland types in humans. Here is the link for the paper now published in Cell Reports. Here is the news release from our press office.

The highlights and the graphical abstract of the publication really summarizes the findings so I am not going to too much detail. But, I will say that our findings touches on a wide range of topics from regulation of gland- and cell-specific expression trends to post-transcriptional and post-translational processes that eventually led to functional diversity of saliva to developmental trajectories of glandular tissues. I think that this paper will serve as a great starting point for many future project that involve understanding the evolutionary and biomedical impact of saliva as well as the biology of gene expression.
