The parotid is a compound acinar gland, with a secretory portion formed only by serous cells in pets, humans and rodents (BANKS, 1992; JUNQUEIRA; CARNEIRO, 2008).
The acinar cells show characteristic cytoplasmic, membrane-bound, electron-dense granules that are smaller and more variable in size than the granules of normal serous cells. The intercalated duct-type cells are small, show few or no secretory granules, and may contain lipid inclusions.
In this connection (Gartner & Hiatt, 2007), in human stated another two types called the brush and serous cells but we did not observe any of them, it might be due to the dense cilia covered the luminal surface of the respiratory epithelium.
