Saliva is an extracellular fluid produced and secreted by salivary glands in the mouth. In humans, saliva comprises 99.5% water plus electrolytes, mucus, white blood cells, epithelial cells (from which DNA can be extracted), enzymes (such as amylase and lipase), antimicrobial agents such as secretory IgA, and lysozymes.The enzymes found in saliva are essential in beginning the process of digestion of dietary starches and fats.The salivary glands in mammals are exocrine glands that produce saliva through a system of ducts. Humans have three paired major salivary glands (parotid, submandibular, and sublingual) as well as hundreds of minor salivary glands.Saliva testing is a diagnostic technique that involves laboratory analysis of saliva to identify markers of endocrine, immunologic, inflammatory, infectious, and other types of conditions.Saliva is an American rock band formed in Memphis, Tennessee in 1996.
