The distribution of Na/K-ATPase in rat exorbital lacrimal gland was studied using immunofluorescent localization of an antibody raised against rat kidney Na/K-ATPase. In cryostat sections, intralobular ducts were strongly immunoreactive and acinar cells showed localization on both apical and basal-lateral surfaces. Acinar cells also had strong intracellular reactivity in apical regions. These results are discussed in light of current models of exocrine gland electrolyte secretion.
