Despite the fact that it is now known that their secretory products are produced via merocrine secretion, the name has remained unchanged. Apocrine sweat glands are coiled tubular glands that secrete a viscous, cloudy, possibly odorous secretion. Apocrine sweat glands secrete in hair follicle canals. They start secreting when they reach puberty; the sweat produced may be acted on by bacteria, resulting in a noticeable odor. Pheromones, chemicals that communicate information to other people by altering their hormonal balance, may be found in apocrine gland secretions. Some research has found that feminine secretions from apocrine sweat glands can change the menstrual cycle of other women (the McClintock effect), though the research methods used have been criticized. Human pheromones and the role of apocrine sweat gland secretions in humans are still poorly understood.
