suppress the gene expression and production of airway MUC5AC mucin
induced by phorbol ester and growth factor.
Low-grade/well-differentiated mucinous adenocarcinoma with PMP showed appendiceal rupture with mucin
extravasation into the abdomen.
4) In addition, mucins
regulate the differentiation, proliferation, and tumor suppression of tumor cells.
2) was characterized by a single layer of simple, uniform columnar cells of approximately 60-70 [micro]m in thickness, interspersed sporadically with large goblet cells containing neutral and acidic mucins
Beta-casomorphin-7 regulates the secretion and expression of gastrointestinal mucins
through a mu-opioid pathway.
Small intestinal mucins
are secreted in proportion to the settling volume in water of dietary indigestible components in rats.
The fact that similar expression pattern of membrane-associated mucins
occurs in cultivated oral mucosal epithelial sheets and in limbal epithelium may be one of the reasons for the efficient of ectopic transplantation of a cultivated oral mucosal epithelial sheet on the cornea of patients with ocular surface diseases (9,19).
The more purulent the sputum the less likely it is to contain mucin
, and it has similar composition to pus.
With a simpler carbohydrate structure than that of other animal mucius, qniumucin could serve as a foundation for more-complex synthetic mucins
tailored to specific applications, Ushida says.
The subsequent examination of the histopathologic materials revealed the extramucosal presence of numerous fungal hyphae in the mucin
Babies probably make their own mucins
as they develop.
The conjunctiva is largely responsible for the production of mucins
within the eye, which play an essential role in maintaining a healthy tear film.
