are highly glycosylated proteoglycans produced by goblet cells in the mucosa; the protective mucins
are constantly reshaped and refreshed.
In preclinical studies, the AMPPLIFY Drug Delivery Technology increased delivery of loteprednol etabonate into ocular tissues more than three-fold compared to current LE products by facilitating penetration through the tear film mucins
The scientists homed in on the enzymes the bacteria use to pluck the sugars off mucin
and found a new family of enzymes that are 30 times more effective at removing red blood cell antigens than previously reported candidates.
aeruginosa , is one of the most potent inducers of mucus overproduction., We sought to identify the role of CUR in LPS-induced MUC5AC mucin
production, as well as the underlying mechanism.
Immunohistochemical staining of mucins
1, 4, and 5AC in each tissue was independently assessed by two senior pathologists who have been blinded to the clinicopathological data.
The presence of mucin
in the neuroendocrine component is reminiscent of goblet cell carcinoid.
The transitional zone of the prostate gland comprised a macrolobulated heterogeneous hyperintense mass with a hypointense capsule on T2-weighted images (WIs) (Figure 1) The prostatic mass exhibited central and peripherally hyperintense areas within the mass on T1-WIs, compatible with mucin
lakes (Figure 2).
They produce mucin
for the lubrication of the intestinal contents and protection of the epithelium.
For example, in ovo Thr supplementation increased mucin
(MUC2) expression in broiler chickens  and quails , thus increasing protection of the intestinal mucosa against pathogens and improving digestion and nutrient absorption.
