Physical characterization of a low-charge glycoform of the MUC5B mucin comprising the gel-phase of an asthmatic respiratory mucous plug. (1/1163)

We have previously noted that sequential extraction of an asthmatic mucous exudate with 6 M guanidinium chloride yielded a fraction of the mucins that were most resistant to solubilization and of high Mr [Sheehan, Richardson, Fung, Howard and Thornton (1995) Am. J. Respir. Cell Mol. Biol. 13, 748-756]. Here we show that this mucin fraction is dominated (at least 96% of the total) by the low-charge glycoform of the MUC5B gene product. Seen in the electron microscope the mucins appeared mainly as compact 'island' structures composed of linear threads often emanating from globular 'nodes' rather than the discrete linear threads more typical of mucins that we have previously described. The effect of reducing agents was as expected for other gel-forming mucins, i.e. reduced subunits or monomers of Mr 3x10(6)) were produced within 15 min of treatment. Kinetic experiments on the cleavage of the intact mucins with the proteinase trypsin indicated two clear regimes of fragmentation. An initial rapid cleavage generated mucins ranging from Mr=4x10(6) to 30x10(6) that in the electron microscope appeared as polydisperse threads (500-3000 nm in length), similar to normal and other respiratory mucins that we have previously characterized. A subsequent slower fragmentation over many hours yielded a major fragment of Mr 3x10(6) and length 200-600 nm, very similar in size and Mr to the subunits obtained by reduction. The results suggest that the MUC5B mucin is assembled, first into polydisperse linear threads, which are then linked together via a protein-mediated process. This might involve part of the mucin polypeptide or an as yet unidentified protein(s). The high proteinase susceptibility of the linkage suggests that it might be a point of control for mucin size and thus mucus rheology.  (+info)

Developmental changes in mucosubstances revealed by immunostaining with antimucus monoclonal antibodies and lectin staining in the epithelium lining the segment from gizzard to duodenum of the chick embryo. (2/1163)

The mucosubstances in the epithelium lining the segment from gizzard to duodenum during development of the chick embryo was studied histochemically using monoclonal antibodies against gizzard mucus and lectins, with attention to the regional differentiation of the epithelium in this segment. The anterior limit of epithelial CdxA mRNA expression detected by in situ hybridisation, which served as the position of the gizzard-duodenal boundary, was clearly found from d 3. Granules positive for some antibodies or lectins were found in the region ranging from the posterior part of the gizzard to the duodenum at d 3, which was followed by an increase in the number of granules and a gradual enlargement of the granule-positive area to the anterior part of the gizzard over 4-6 d. From d 4, the epithelia of the gizzard body and of the pyloric or duodenal region came to be differently stained with some antibodies or lectins. From d 10, each region showed a specific pattern of staining. The epithelia of the gizzard body and pyloric region contained abundant mucus granules with a different staining pattern. In the duodenum the number of stained granules was low except in occasional goblet cells. Thus the epithelia of the gizzard body, pyloric region and duodenum may produce different mucosubstances and the regional differentiation in these epithelia may start at rather early stages soon after the formation of digestive tube.  (+info)

Immunoglobulin-specific radioimmunoprecipitation assays for quantitation of nasal secretory antibodies to hemagglutinin of type A influenza viruses. (3/1163)

Radioimmunoprecipitation (RIP) assays were developed to selectively quantitate class-specific antibodies to purified hemagglutinins (HA) of type A influenza virus in nasal secretions. Rabbit anti-human secretory piece of immunoglobulin A (IgA) and rabbit anti-human IgG were used as second antibodies. A third antibody, goat anti-rabbit IgG, was incorporated into the system to separate immune complexes formed between iodinated HA, nasal wash test specimen, and second antibody. The utilization of this reagent avoided the need for large quantities of IgA and IgG antibody-negative carrier secretions. Nasal was specimens obtained from 14 adults immunized with an inactivated type A influenza virus vaccine were evaluated by RIP and viral neutralization assays. Significant homologous postvaccination secretory IgA and IgG antibody levels were demonstrable in 13 (93%) of individuals by RIP, whereas only 5 (36%) exhibited rises by viral neutralization tests. Moreover, the geometric mean IgA and IgG antibody levels were at least 20- and 37-fold greater than the neutralizing antibody titer. The pattern of heterologous immunoglobulin-specific antibody responses tended to be similar to those observed with the homologous HA subunit.  (+info)

Neuroregulation by vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) of mucus secretion in ferret trachea: activation of BK(Ca) channels and inhibition of neurotransmitter release. (4/1163)

1. The aims of this study were to determine: (1) whether vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) regulates cholinergic and 'sensory-efferent' (tachykininergic) 35SO4 labelled mucus output in ferret trachea in vitro, using a VIP antibody, (2) the class of potassium (K+) channel involved in VIP-regulation of cholinergic neural secretion using glibenclamide (an ATP-sensitive K+ (K(ATP)) channel inhibitor), iberiotoxin (a large conductance calcium activated K+ (BK(ca)) channel blocker), and apamin (a small conductance K(ca) (SK(ca)) channel blocker), and (3) the effect of VIP on cholinergic neurotransmission using [3H]-choline overflow as a marker for acetylcholine (ACh) release. 2. Exogenous VIP (1 and 10 microM) alone increased 35SO4 output by up to 53% above baseline, but suppressed (by up to 80% at 1 microM) cholinergic and tachykininergic neural secretion without altering secretion induced by ACh or substance P (1 microM each). Endogenous VIP accounted for the minor increase in non-adrenergic, non-cholinergic (NANC), non-tachykininergic neural secretion, which was compatible with the secretory response of exogenous VIP. 3. Iberiotoxin (3 microM), but not apamin (1 microM) or glibenclamide (0.1 microM), reversed the inhibition by VIP (10 nM) of cholinergic neural secretion. 4. Both endogenous VIP (by use of the VIP antibody; 1:500 dilution) and exogenous VIP (0.1 microM), the latter by 34%, inhibited ACh release from cholinergic nerve terminals and this suppression was completely reversed by iberiotoxin (0.1 microM). 5. We conclude that, in ferret trachea in vitro, endogenous VIP has dual activity whereby its small direct stimulatory action on mucus secretion is secondary to its marked regulation of cholinergic and tachykininergic neurogenic mucus secretion. Regulation is via inhibition of neurotransmitter release, consequent upon opening of BK(Ca) channels. In the context of neurogenic mucus secretion, we propose that VIP joins NO as a neurotransmitter of i-NANC nerves in ferret trachea.  (+info)

Whirling disease: host specificity and interaction between the actinosporean stage of Myxobolus cerebralis and rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss. (5/1163)

Scanning electron microscopic studies were conducted on rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss in the first 60 min after their exposure to the triactinomyxon spores of Myxobolus cerebralis. The results demonstrated that as early as 1 min post exposure the whole process, from the attachment of the triactinomyxon spores to the complete penetration of their sporoplasm germs, had occurred. The triactinomyxon spores sought out the secretory openings of mucous cells of the epidermis, the respiratory epithelium and the buccal cavity of trout and used them as portals of entry. Exposure experiments of the triactinomyxon spores of M. cerebralis to non-salmonid fish, such as goldfish Carassius auratus, carp Cyprinus carpio, nose Chondrostoma nasus, medaka Oryzias latipes, guppy Poecilia reticulata and also the amphibian tadpole Rana pipiens as well as to rainbow trout fry indicated a specificity for salmonids. Attempts to activate the triactinomyxon spores by exposure to mucus prepared from cyprinid and salmonid fish showed no significant differences from those conducted in tap water. The results suggest that the simultaneous presence of both mechano- and chemotactic stimuli was required for finding the salmonid fish host.  (+info)

Pulmonary expression of interleukin-13 causes inflammation, mucus hypersecretion, subepithelial fibrosis, physiologic abnormalities, and eotaxin production. (6/1163)

Interleukin (IL)-13 is a pleiotropic cytokine produced in large quantities by activated CD4(+) Th2 lymphocytes. To define further its potential in vivo effector functions, the Clara cell 10-kDa protein promoter was used to express IL-13 selectively in the lung, and the phenotype of the resulting transgenic mice was characterized. In contrast to transgene-negative littermates, the lungs of transgene-positive mice contained an inflammatory response around small and large airways and in the surrounding parenchyma. It was mononuclear in nature and contained significant numbers of eosinophils and enlarged and occasionally multinucleated macrophages. Airway epithelial cell hypertrophy, mucus cell metaplasia, the hyperproduction of neutral and acidic mucus, the deposition of Charcot-Leyden-like crystals, and subepithelial airway fibrosis were also prominently noted. Eotaxin protein and mRNA were also present in large quantities in the lungs of the transgene-positive, but not the transgene-negative, mice. IL-4, IL-5, granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor, and monocyte chemoattractant protein-5 were not similarly detected. Physiological evaluations revealed significant increases in baseline airways resistance and airways hyperresponsiveness (AHR) to methacholine in transgene-positive animals. Thus, the targeted pulmonary expression of IL-13 causes a mononuclear and eosinophilic inflammatory response, mucus cell metaplasia, the deposition of Charcot-Leyden-like crystals, airway fibrosis, eotaxin production, airways obstruction, and nonspecific AHR. IL-13 may play an important role in the pathogenesis of similar responses in asthma or other Th2-polarized tissue responses.  (+info)

Pneumococcus activation of the 5-lipoxygenase pathway and production of glycoproteins in the middle ear of rats. (7/1163)

Pneumococcal otitis media is associated with the production of potent inflammatory mediators (leukotrienes), but the mechanism by which pneumococcus induces production of leukotrienes in the middle ear is poorly understood. In this study, up-regulation of 2 genes that govern the lipoxygenase pathway, cPLA2 and 5-LOX, was observed in rats following inoculation of pneumococcus into the middle ear cavity. Expression of cPLA2 was low, and 5-LOX gene expression was not detected in control animals. Up-regulation of cPLA2 and 5-LOX in middle ear epithelial cells was accompanied by an increase of high-molecular-weight glycoproteins in middle ear fluid and cells. These findings suggest that pneumococcus activates the lipoxygenase pathway by up-regulating expression of the cPLA2 and 5-LOX genes. This, in turn, may stimulate synthesis and secretion of high-molecular-weight glycoproteins that facilitate production of fluid in the middle ear cleft.  (+info)

Regulation of 15-lipoxygenase expression and mucus secretion by IL-4 in human bronchial epithelial cells. (8/1163)

Our laboratory has recently shown that mucus differentiation of cultured normal human tracheobronchial epithelial (NHTBE) cells is accompanied by the increased expression of 15-lipoxygenase (15-LO). We used differentiated NHTBE cells to investigate the regulation of 15-LO expression and mucus secretion by inflammatory cytokines. Interleukin (IL)-4 and IL-13 dramatically enhanced the expression of 15-LO, whereas tumor necrosis factor-alpha, IL-1beta, and interferon (IFN)-gamma had no effect. These cytokines did not increase the expression of cyclooxygenase-2, with the exception of a modest induction by IL-1beta. The IL-4-induced 15-LO expression was concentration dependent, and mRNA and protein expression increased within 3 and 6 h, respectively, after IL-4 treatment. In metabolism studies with intact cells, 15-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (15-HETE) and 13-hydroxyoctadecadienoic acid (13-HODE) were the major metabolites formed from exogenous arachidonic acid and linoleic acid. No prostaglandins were detected. IL-4 treatment dramatically increased the formation of 13-HODE and 15-HETE compared with that in untreated NHTBE cells, and several additional 15-LO metabolites were observed. Pretreatment of NHTBE cells with IFN-gamma or dexamethasone did not inhibit the IL-4-induced expression of 15-LO except at high concentrations (100 ng/ml of IFN-gamma and 10 microM dexamethasone). IL-4 treatment inhibited mucus secretion and attenuated the expression of the mucin genes MUC5AC and MUC5B at 12-24 h after treatment. Addition of 15-HETE precursor and 13-HODE precursor to the cultures did not alter mucin secretion or mucin gene expression. On the basis of the data presented, we conclude that the increase in 15-LO expression by IL-4 and attenuation of mucus secretion may be independent biological events.  (+info)

Fish epidermal mucus contains innate immune components, secreted by globlet cells that provide the primary defence against different pathogenic microbes and act as a barrier between fish and its immediate niche. The major function of mucus includes entrapment and sloughing of microbes. The mucus also contains many factors such as antimicrobial peptides (AMPs), lysozymes, lectins, proteases, etc that provide innate immunity. The AMPs secreted by epidermal mucus cells displayed antimicrobial activity against a variety of pathogens. Besides, mucosal lysozyme was found to produce significant bacteriolytic action whereas different proteases found in skin mucus of fish can kill the pathogens by cleaving its protein or by activating immunological mechanisms. Lectins are also mucosal agglutinins that play a diverse role in innate immunity like opsonization, activation of complement, etc. Epidermal mucus in fish thus provides an innate and fast acting protection which is non-specific and is found to be
Mucus clearance is the primary defense mechanism that protects airways from inhaled infectious and toxic agents. In the classical gel-on-liquid mucus clearance model, a mucus gel is propelled on top of a watery periciliary layer surrounding the cilia. However, this model fails to explain the formation of a distinct mucus layer in health or why mucus clearance fails in disease. We propose and verified a gel-on-brush model in which the periciliary layer is occupied by membrane-spanning mucins and mucopolysaccharides densely tethered to the airway surface. This brush prevents mucus penetration into the periciliary space and causes mucus to form a distinct layer. The relative osmotic moduli of the mucus and periciliary brush layers explain both the stability of mucus clearance in health and its failure in airway disease. We demonstrated a strong correlation between the extent of the chronic bronchitis disease and the state of hydration of the airway surface layer - mucus concentration and the ...
Epidermal mucus (mucus) is increasingly applied to fish ecological studies based on stable isotope analysis (SIA) due to its non-invasive collection. However, knowledge on mucus SI turnover rates of individual fish remains limited, including uncertainty over how they are influenced by fish body sizes. Here, a diet switch experiment predicted mucus SI turnover rates (δ13C and δ15N) as a function of time using samples taken over 200 days from 10 individually tagged common carp Cyprinus carpio covering two size groups. Non-linear mixed effects models revealed rapid turnover of both δ13C and δ15N (T50: 2-5 days; T95: 9-22 days); δ15N turnover rates were slower for the larger cohort, while δ13C turnover rates were independent of body size. Within size groups, turnover rates were not expected to vary between individuals. These experimental results suggest that due to these fast turnover rates, epidermal mucus can provide insights into the diets of fish over very short timeframes, although for ...

The respiratory tract is normally kept essentially free of bacteria by cilia-mediated mucus transport, but in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and cystic fibrosis (CF), bacteria and mucus accumulates instead. To address the mechanisms behind the mucus accumulation, the proteome of bronchoalveolar lavages from COPD patients and mucus collected in an elastase-induced mouse model of COPD was analyzed, revealing similarities with each other and with the protein content in colonic mucus. Moreover, stratified laminated sheets of mucus were observed in airways from patients with CF and COPD and in elastase-exposed mice. On the other hand, the mucus accumulation in the elastase model was reduced in Muc5b-KO mice. While mucus plugs were removed from airways by washing with hypertonic saline in the elastase model, mucus remained adherent to epithelial cells. Bacteria were trapped on this mucus, whereas, in non-elastase-treated mice, bacteria were found on the epithelial cells. We propose that ...
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a major genetic disorder affecting Caucasian populations. Mutations in the CFTR chloride channel gene cause osmotic imbalance and hyperabsorption of airway surface liquid, which thickens and prevents mucus clearance. Excessive mucus and failure in clearance create a thriving niche for microbial pathogens. Among the most significant pathogens is Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PA), a major ESKAPE pathogen that chronically infects CF airways. Repeated cycles of PA infection exacerbate mucus hypersecretion and airway obstruction. My undergraduate research advisor Dr. Gee Laus laboratory has previously shown that multiple PA virulence factors, including pyocyanin, lipopolysaccharides (LPS), flagellum, and alginate are capable of causing mucus hypersecretion in airways. PCN induces excessive mucus within airways by inactivating FOXA2, a key transcription factor that regulates mucus homeostasis. The mechanisms by which LPS induce mucus hypersecretion in the CF airways are poorly ...
Alkaline mucus is a thick fluid produced by animals which confers tissue protection in an acidic environment, such as in the stomach. Mucus that serves a protective function against acidic environments generally has a high viscosity, though the thickness and viscosity of the mucus layer can vary due to several factors. For example, alkaline mucus in the stomach increases in thickness when the stomach is distended. The pH level of the mucus also plays a role in its viscosity, as higher pH levels tend to alter the thickness of the mucus, making it less viscous. Because of this, invading agents such as Helicobacter pylori, a bacterium that causes stomach ulcers, can alter the pH of the mucus to make the mucus pliable enough to move through. Exposure to atmospheric air also tends to increase the pH level of alkaline mucus. In humans, alkaline mucus is present in several organs and provides protection by way of its alkalinity and high viscosity. Alkaline mucus exists in the human eye, stomach, ...
To our knowledge, there is no report regarding the assessment of chronic mucus hypersecretion in vitro. This is most likely related to the fact that many in vitro studies are of short duration, employing acute exposures to mucus-inducing stimuli. However, mucus hypersecretion is a feature of animal models of asthma (Shim et al., 2001; Singer et al., 2004; Song et al., 2016) and occurs in mice and rats following inhalation of e.g. acrolein and cigarette smoke (Deshmukh et al., 2008; Yang et al., 2012; Chen et al., 2013; Vlahos and Bozinovski, 2015; Liu et al., 2017). There appears to be no consensus as to the chronicity of mucus hypersecretion, and no standradized measure exists.. Clinically, coughing and sputum production for ,3 months in at least two consecutive years is defined as (chronic) mucus hypersecretion (Vestbo, 2002). As such, diagnosis depends on the extent of medical examination, including questioning the patient and subject recall. Current clinical practice, however, does not ...
The commensal bacteria in colon live and thrive in the outer loose mucus layer. This is possible after the Muc2 mucin network has expanded in volume, such that it allows the bacteria to penetrate into the mucin network. Once inside the mucus gel, the commensal bacteria can use its large number of glycan-degrading enzymes that release one monosaccharide at a time from the mucin glycans. In this way, it will take some time for the bacterial enzymes to reach and expose the mucin protein core for proteolysis that will degrade the mucin protein core. In this way the mucin polymeric network of the loose mucus is maintained for some time to give a relatively thick outer mucus layer. Although difficult to visualize, the outer loose mucus will probably be increasingly degraded the closer it comes to the luminal content. It is further indicated that bacteria contribute to dissolving the outer loose mucus as germ-free mice have, relative to the inner layer, a thick outer loose mucus layer (16). As ...
This study measures mucus thickness and secretion after its partial removal, from stomach to colon, in the rat in vivo by intravital microscopy. Key findings for all regions of the gut studied are as follows: 1) the mucus layer is continuous and substantially thicker than in previous measurements made in vitro (2,6, 25, 29, 39, 43, 44) and 2) the mucus layer consists of two components, a loosely adherent gel that can be removed by suction and an underlying firmly adherent gel that remains. The relative thickness of the two component layers of the mucus gel varies for different regions of the gut. Thus in the stomach, the thickness of the firmly adherent mucus component is 80 and 154 μm for the corpus and antrum, respectively, with an overlying layer, of similar thickness, of loosely adherent mucus that can be removed by suction. In contrast, in the small intestine, practically all of the mucus gel could be removed by suction to leave a very thin discontinuous mucus gel layer, with several tops ...
Increased mucus production is a common cause of morbidity and mortality in inflammatory airway diseases, including asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and cystic fibrosis. However, the precise molecular mechanisms for pathogenic mucus production are largely undetermined. Accordingly, there are no specific and effective anti-mucus therapeutics. Here, we define a signaling pathway from chloride channel calcium-activated 1 (CLCA1) to MAPK13 that is responsible for IL-13-driven mucus production in human airway epithelial cells. The same pathway was also highly activated in the lungs of humans with excess mucus production due to COPD. We further validated the pathway by using structure-based drug design to develop a series of novel MAPK13 inhibitors with nanomolar potency that effectively reduced mucus production in human airway epithelial cells. These results uncover and validate a new pathway for regulating mucus production as well as a corresponding therapeutic approach to mucus ...
The human body produces the mucus at all times, but you dont usually take much notice of it. But, when a change in your body happens, the density of the mucus changes as well, and these are the times when you notice it and want to get rid of it in an instant. As we already mentioned, your mucus gets thicker when you are sick.. Another situation when the mucus changes its consistency is when the body is being affected by an allergen and the mucus is trying to protect the body from it.. And while wer on the subject, there are a lot of foods which cause an increase in the production of the mucus. If you want to get your mucus to a minimum, then you should definitely avoid these foods - red meat, milk and dairy products, refined sugar, gluten and alcohol..

Personalized medicine approach using a human Colon Chip opens up gateway to study mucus barrier functions in patients with intestinal diseases in vitro.
As demonstrated previously,7 the inner mucus layer of normal healthy colon of mice forms a barrier that separates bacteria from the epithelium. This was shown by Carnoy fixation of intact tissue without previous washing of the luminal content. We have now studied a number of different colitis models and confirmed mucus defects in all of them. It is well established that intestinal bacteria are necessary for all these models and that the composition of the microbiota influences the severity and outcome of the inflammation. Muc2-null mice totally lack mucus and spontaneously develop severe inflammation,7 ,15 while other models all have a more or less intact inner mucus layer which is, however, penetrated by bacteria. The glycan-deficient Core 1-deficient mice have less well glycosylated Muc2 mucin, which is probably easier to degrade by the bacteria.21 DSS induces inflammation initiated by a direct toxic effect on the mucus.18 ,28 Tlr5−/− mice have a thinner and defective inner mucus layer.29 ...

Protection from abrasion and predation is … Frog skin secretes a mucus that helps keep it moist. Frogs produce a slimy substance called mucus, the mucus comes from glands in the frogs skin. Teeth: The lower jaw lacks teeth. Mucous glands, which aid in maintaining the water balance and offer protection from bacteria, are extremely numerous in fish skin, especially in cyclostomes and teleosts. Privacy Policy3. Almost all frogs develop lungs when they develop into adults, but they still depend on cutaneous gas exchange (breathing through the skin) to get oxygen, especially when the frog is in a burrow underground or swimming in the water. thigh. The ridges, thus, formed by the thickening of the skin are known as dorsolateral dermal plicae. The granular gland forms a syncytial secretory compartment within the acinus, which is surrounded by smooth muscle cells. 4. These mucous glands secrete mucus that helps in lubricating the food. What is the function of mucus on a frogs skin. The dermis is ...

The transport of particles by cilia lining vapor-filled tubes such as the trachea, bronchi, and upper bronchioles requires that the particles be carried by mucus [Sade et al, 1970], and the force that causes mucus flow is generated by the beat of the underlying cilia. The means by which the ciliary beat force is transmitted to the mucus is not clear. Lucas and Douglas [1934] proposed that cilia penetrate the mucus enough to push it forward in a conveyor-belt fashion. This view is consistent with recent EM studies [Yoneda, 1976; Reissig, Bang, and Bang, 1978] that suggest the serous layer is thinner than the length of a cilium (5-6 µm). In contrast, Ross and Corrsin [1974] developed a theoretical model for mucociliary transport based on the assumption that mucus persists as a blanket carried by the serous fluid, which is in turn propelled by the cilia. If one accepts current simplified models which take into account the viscoelastic properties of mucus, the Lucas and Douglas model is the more ...

Mucus (mucous), or slime, is a slippery liquid. It is made by many living things as a kind of biological lubricant. It plays the role in living things which oil plays in machines. Mucus is mainly composed of polysaccharides, which are long-chain carbohydrates. These molecules are stiff when dry, and sticky and slippery when wet. They are present in all types of organisms from bacteria to humans. In vertebrates mucus is made by mucous membranes. Mucus may have antiseptic enzymes (such as lysozymes) and immunoglobulins (antigens).[1] A major function of this mucus is to protect against infection by fungi, bacteria and viruses. Mucus protects epithelial cells in the lungs, gut, genital, visual, and auditory systems in mammals; the epidermis in amphibians; and the gills in fish. Snails, slugs, hagfish, and certain invertebrates also produce external mucus. As well as a protective function, slime helps movement and plays a role in communication. Mucus is produced in many parts of the body. All the ...
Every year around flu season our offices are packed with patients with all kinds of coughs, colds, and sniffles. Inevitably, the conversation will include a description of mucus. I felt bad 3 days ago, then started seeing yellow mucus, but today it is green so I know I need an antibiotic.. In reality, the color of mucus is rarely used as an indication by itself for the presence of an infection or not. Patients with clear mucus can actually have severe infections, and patients with green bloody mucus can be fine. Doctors look at the big picture and things like fever, wheezing, inflammation, cough, and vital signs to more accurately figure out what is going on.. Clear mucus is normal mucus. Composed mostly of water, clear nasal discharge is produced at rates up to 1.5 liters daily, and commonly runs down the back of the throat and dissolves in the stomach. Allergies and congestion can cause more of it to be produced, and the absence of color generally means there is no infection present.. Common ...
We generally think of mucus that covers the airways as a homogeneous material, says Ostedgaard, UI research associate professor of internal medicine, and first author of the study. This work reveals that mucus from submucosal glands and mucus from goblet cells have different morphological structures.. These structures may serve different purposes in clearing particulates and bacteria from our lungs. Our study also shows how these structures are abnormal in cystic fibrosis, explaining why patients with this disease have difficulty clearing mucus from their lungs.. The next step will be to understand why airways produce these different types of mucus structures and learn whether the different mucus structures actually play a role in CF lung disease, and other airway diseases like asthma and COPD. Our observations make us think differently about how mucus functions in the airway, and how that might change in lung diseases like cystic fibrosis, Ostedgaard says. A better understanding of the ...
How to get rid of excess mucus advices? Season the food with hot spices! Spices, such as cayenne pepper and ginger, are a great choice for seasoning dishes if you want to get rid of excess mucus. You can add cayenne pepper, in small quantities, in all kinds of stews. Ginger can be used in both salty and sweet recipes. Expectorant essential oils: You can use essential oils in an aroma diffuser or you can massage your chest with them, mixing them with vegetable oils, such as olive, almond, coconut or sesame oil.. Normally the body produces about a litre of mucus a day and this slides down the throat without us even noticing. But when we have a reaction to an irritant, the production of mucus increases, and it becomes thicker. Excess mucus causes a runny nose, for instance. If you suffer from a chronic cough that wont go away, wake up with puffy or crusty eyes in the morning, a constant stuffy nose or bad breath throughout the day, you may be suffering from excess mucus production. Excessive mucus ...
Mucus in throat is actually otherwise known as phlegm. This is especially vexing when this starts to clog up the airways and interfere with your breathing pattern and even with the way you speak. For you to better understand how mucus forms in the throat, let us tackle a brief anatomy and physiology of the throat. About 1 to 2 liters of mucus is actually being secreted by the glands located on your nose and throat. Cells lining up the sinus tracts are what primarily compose mucus. When in liberal amounts, mucus in the throat actually serves a crucial function. Its actually this gooey substance that keeps the airway moistened so as to prevent it from drying out. The mucus is also responsible for warding off foreign bodies from entering the airways. However, there are certain instances in which the secretion of mucus tends to go overdrive such as that of an allergic reaction. When this happens, the condition becomes really annoying and if this condition has been bothering you for some time, this ...

The mechanisms underlying the development and natural progression of the airway mucus defect in cystic fibrosis (CF) remain largely unclear. New animal models of CF, coupled with imaging using micro-optical coherence tomography, can lead to insights regarding these questions. The Cftr-/- (KO) rat allows for longitudinal examination of the development and progression of airway mucus abnormalities. The KO rat exhibits decreased periciliary depth, hyperacidic pH, and increased mucus solid content percentage; however, the transport rates and viscoelastic properties of the mucus are unaffected until the KO rat ages. Airway submucosal gland hypertrophy develops in the KO rat by 6 months of age. Only then does it induce increased mucus viscosity, collapse of the periciliary layer, and delayed mucociliary transport; stimulation of gland secretion potentiates this evolution. These findings could be reversed by bicarbonate repletion but not pH correction without counterion donation. These studies ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Overexpression of ras in mucus-secreting human colon carcinoma cells of low tumorigenicity. AU - Augenlicht, Leonard H.. AU - Augeron, C.. AU - Yander, G.. AU - Laboisse, C.. PY - 1987. Y1 - 1987. N2 - We have investigated the expression of the protooncogenes of the myc and ras family in HT29 cells and in three different clonal cell lines derived from this colon carcinoma cell line. In contrast to the decrease in myc expression seen when leukemia cells are induced to differentiate, we have found no changes in expression of the myc gene family in differentiated colon carcinoma cells. However, a greater than 5-fold increase in expression of sequences which hybridize to Ha-ras was observed in cells which secrete mucin, with a smaller increase seen in expression of Ki-ras in the same cells. This increase was not seen in cells which exhibit vectorial transport of water and ions, and which are not mucus-secreting. All differentiated lines were less tumorigenic in nude mice than the ...
We understood already at that time that this must be important for protecting the large intestine, but we could not guess that the inner layer was such a good barrier for bacteria, says Professor Lena Holm at Uppsala University that has taken part in the current research. In the article it is shown that both mucus layers have an identical composition where an enormous mucin protein called Muc2 is the main constituent. This is a protein that the Gothenburg group has been working on for more than 10 years to understand its function. The Muc2 mucin and other components is formed in the goblet cells where the inner mucus layer is attached. This layer is continuously renewed from below and after a tenth of a millimeter it is released and expanded in volume at least four times. This outer layer can then be transported away together with the intestinal content. When the authors studied were all the intestinal bacteria were located, it was observed that the inner mucus layer was devoid of bacteria and ...
Ulcerative colitis (UC) is the result of an inappropriate colonic inflammatory response triggered by environmental and genetic factors. We have recently shown that mucus from UC patients has a decreased phosphatidylcholine (PC) content, while clinical trials revealed that therapeutic addition of PC to the colonic mucus alleviated the inflammatory activity. The mechanisms behind this are still unclear. We hypothesized that PC has at least two possible functions in the intestine: First, it establishes the surface hydrophobicity of the mucus and therefore protects the underlying tissue against intraluminal aggressors; recent experiments on surgical specimens revealed reduced surface tension and hydrophobicity in UC patients. Second, mucus phospholipids might also be integrated into the plasma membranes of enterocytes and thereby influence the signaling state of the mucosa. PC has been shown to inhibit TNF-α induced pro-inflammatory responses including: (1) assembly of plasma membrane actin; (2) activation

If you want to fight the problem of mucus, the first thing you need to give up is smoking. Some scientific studies have proved that there is a connection between smoking and production of phlegm. Probably its like that because cigarettes dry out vocal chords.. Smoking is bad for your health so try to quit it and for sure you will feel better and you will see that the production of mucus is reduced. At the beginning you can try nicotine patches.. It might sound surprising to you, but dairy products like milk or yoghurts can be the reasons for accumulated mucus. It does not mean you should give it up completely, but at least try to limit the consumption of milk and see if it makes any difference to mucus in your throat.. If you work with dangerous chemicals, paint fumes or cleaners, you might suffer from mucus in throat. Try to avoid it or if its not possible, at least always cover your face with a mask.. It has been proved that humming vibrations may break up the mucus that accumulated in your ...

By altering their habitats, engineering species can improve their own fitness. However, the effect of this strategy on the fitness of coexisting species or on the structure of the respective food web is poorly understood. In this study, bacteria and bacterivorous nematodes with short (Caenorhabditis elegans) and long (Plectus acuminatus) life cycles were exposed to the mucus secreted by the freshwater flatworm Polycelis tenuis. The growth, reproduction, and feeding preferences of the nematodes in the presence/absence of the mucus were then determined. In addition, confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM) was used to examine the structural footprint of the mucus and the mucus colonization dynamics of bacteria and protozoans. Mucus exposure resulted in a greater reproductive output in P. acuminatus than in C. elegans. In a cafeteria experiment, both nematode species were attracted by bacteria-rich patches and were not deterred by mucus. CLSM showed that the flatworms spread a layer of polysaccharide-rich

Billy Joe Shaver seems to only get better with age. After an absence of about four years from Boston, Shaver, on the eve of the release of an unusual CD for him, was in great form with his weathered voice, band and energy level. Shaver has a very vast catalogue going back about 35 years. He has never been in pantheon of the most popular performers. His vocals is somewhat of an acquired taste as its a weathered voice, not particularly pretty but effective in putting the songs across. And that is where Shaver shines - as a songwriter. So much so that Waylon Jennings once recorded an entire disc of Shaver songs (Shaver sang Honky Tonk Heroes, the title track of Jennings effort). Shaver admitted he could write well, sounding almost egotistical before you realize that he really isnt full of himself. Shaver has a very relaxed stage presence. He tells lots of stories, often funny, including one about his mother, who was a real character, and his own marital problems (he married his first wife a ...
A novel method to measure airway mucus plugging using CT images from patients with asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients.
Positive expiratory pressure (PEP) therapy is an effective method for removing mucus build-up in the lungs of sufferers of chronic lung diseases such as cystic fibrosis (CF). However, the compliance by young children and adolescents to undertake such physiotherapy can lead to confrontation and stressful situations within families, and can impact on the health of the individual. We have developed game software which is controlled through breathing into a PEP mask or mouthpiece using an air pressure sensor to interface with the PC. By combining games with mucus clearing devices, it could provide a powerful means of encouraging children, teenagers and adults to engage more frequently, and effectively, with vital mucus clearance physiotherapy. This paper presents promising initial results and describes further usability testing plans.. ...

Nippostrongylus brasiliensis infections generate pulmonary pathologies that can be associated with strong TH2 polarization of the hosts immune response. We present data demonstrating N. brasiliensis-driven airway mucus production to be dependent on smooth muscle cell interleukin 4 receptor-α (IL-4Rα) responsiveness. At days 7 and 10 post infection (PI), significant airway mucus production was found in IL-4Rα−/lox control mice, whereas global knockout (IL-4Rα−/−) and smooth muscle-specific IL-4Rα-deficient mice (SM-MHCCre IL-4Rα−/lox) showed reduced airway mucus responses. Furthermore, interleukin (IL)-13 and IL-5 cytokine production in SM-MHCCre IL-4Rα−/lox mice was impaired along with a transient reduction in T-cell numbers in the lung. In vitro treatment of smooth muscle cells with secreted N. brasiliensis excretory-secretory antigen (NES) induced IL-6 production. Decreased protein kinase C (PKC)-dependent smooth muscle cell proliferation associated with cell cycle arrest was ...
Where is mucus produced? Oestrogenic mucus is secreted in cells in the cervical crypts under the stimulation of oestrogen on the six days leading up to ovulation, i.e. in the fertile phase of the cycle.. Where is mucus perceived? As the woman goes about her daily activities she perceives the sensation of the presence of mucus at the opening of the vagina, (called the vulva).3 The vulva can sense the presence of as little as 5mg of mucus, while 40mg of mucus are needed to obtain enough mucus for visual inspection.3 Note: The sensation parameter is very useful for those women who are blind, as they can readily perceive the changes in sensation at the vulva during the cycle.. What sensation is perceived at the vulva in the infertile phase of the cycle? ...
CORTES, Manuel E.; GONZALEZ, Fernando and VIGIL, Pilar. Crystallization of Bovine Cervical Mucus at Oestrus: An Update. Rev. Med. Vet. [online]. 2014, n.28, pp.103-116. ISSN 0122-9354.. Bovine cervical mucus changes its biochemical composition and biophysical properties due to the variations in sex steroid levels during the oestrous cycle. As a consequence of oestrogen rise, cervical mucus is produced in larger amounts at oestrus-a stage also characterized by an increase in mucus crystallization when observed under light microscopy. The objective of this article is to provide an updated review of the main aspects regarding crystallization of bovine cervical mucus. First, it makes reference to the composition of cervical mucus and the critical functions that this secretion exerts on bovine reproductive physiology, as well as in other species. Then, the article deals with the phenomenon of crystallization observed in cervical mucus, describing the main models used to classify the crystalline ...
Cervical mucus has a very important role in the conception phase. It is vital that you improve the quantity of your cervical mucus as it aids the sperm in its journey to locate the egg. Therefore, the mucus must be prevalent enough to keep the sperm flowing in the direction of the egg.. One way to improve your cervical mucus quantity is to cut back on certain substances. Items such as caffeine and tobacco will hinder the production of cervical mucus and make it more difficult for the sperm to reach the egg. Eliminating or decreasing the intake of these items will help the process greatly.. Another way to improve your cervical mucus quantity is to drink enough fluids each day. Water is the best type of fluid to drink and you should drink approximately 10-6 oz. glasses of water per day. Besides drinking water each day, you should also drink grapefruit juice. The components of the grapefruit juice will aid in helping to produce extra cervical mucus which will in turn help you in your conception ...
This method depends on the observation of changes in the consistency and the volume of cervical mucus in relation to the ovulation. On feeling the cervical mucus in the vagina by fingers the dry days and the wet days are recognized by the women. The wet days are the fertile days.. The number of wet days are about 10 days in 28 day cycle. Wet days start with sticky white mucus for 2-3 days following 2-3 days dry days after menses. Sticky white mucus days is followed by clear slippery profuse mucus for 3-5 days (this slippery mucus is capable of being stretched between two fingers) . The last day is called the peak day. Following peak day there is sticky mucus for 3 days. This the end of fertile period.. Many women are unable to observe these symptoms and thus the Pregnancy failure rate is as high as 22 per 100 women year.. ...

Preschool %disease and %MUPAT were significantly associated with school-age %bronchiectasis ...
1. I had an unprotected sex recently. How will my cervical mucus look like after ovulation if I am pregnant?. During the implantation, you may observe pink or brown discharge. However, for some women they may experience milky white and thin discharge. As pregnancy progresses, you will be observing an increase in the amount of white discharge.. 2. What does thick white cervical mucus mean after ovulation?. The thick cervical mucus after ovulation states that your fertile days are completed. If the discharge is excessive and white in color then it can indicate a conception. If the discharge is itchy, smelly, yellow or green in color then it indicates an infection. It is better to consult a doctor of you are observing any unusual changes in the cervical mucus.. 3. How does cervical mucus look like in early weeks of pregnancy?. Most of the women get confused between PMS (pre-menstrual syndrome) discharge and early pregnancy discharge. Usually, during early pregnancy the discharge will be milky white ...

Mucus hypersecretion and plugging of lower respiratory tract airways due to mucus plugs have long been recognized as the leading cause of the morbidity and mortality in asthma. MUC5AC protein is a major component of airway mucus. Here, we showed that interleukin (IL)-13 induced MUC5AC production and secretion, and leptin expression in the human bronchial epithelial cell line-16 (HBE16) cells in a concentration-dependent manner. Leptin knockdown suppressed MUC5AC production and secretion induced by IL-13. We further investigated the molecular mechanism by which leptin functioned, and found that leptin regulated IL-13-induced MUC5AC production and secretion via the JAK2-STAT3 pathway ...
Answer: As part of your daily fertility chart, monitoring changes in cervical mucus (CM, cervical fluids) is pivotal in determining the best time to make procreative love. During your menstrual cycle, youll likely experience a number of fluctuations in both the amount of cervical mucus present and in the quality of that those fluids: By quality, I am referring to the fertile or infertile quality of cervical fluids, their changing textures, colors, ph levels. As you near your ovulation day, cervical mucus will begin to become fertile and the amount of fluid present will likely increase daily as you near midcycle. Non-fertile CM is characterized by a thickness and sticky texture. It will hold its shape and wont stretch between fingertips, but rather disconnect or break. The color of this non-fertile mucus is going to be white or yellowish and it will be opaque (cant see light through it).Fertile cervical mucus (which enters the scene as you enter your fertile window) is going to be stretchy, ...
This time is the most likely time to find what is commonly known as EWCM (egg-white cervical mucus) or spinn (short for spinnbarkeit which is German for spider-web).

BACKGROUND. The link between mucus plugs and airflow obstruction has not been established in chronic severe asthma, and the role of eosinophils and their products in mucus plug formation is unknown. METHODS. In clinical studies, we developed and applied a bronchopulmonary segment-based scoring system to quantify mucus plugs on multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) lung scans from 146 subjects with asthma and 22 controls, and analyzed relationships among mucus plug scores, forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1), and airway eosinophils. Additionally, we used airway mucus gel models to explore whether oxidants generated by eosinophil peroxidase (EPO) oxidize cysteine thiol groups to promote mucus plug formation. RESULTS. Mucus plugs occurred in at least 1 of 20 lung segments in 58% of subjects with asthma and in only 4.5% of controls, and the plugs in subjects with asthma persisted in the same segment for years. A high mucus score (plugs in ≥ 4 segments) occurred in 67% of subjects with ...

We report a carcinoma that is, to the best of our knowledge, the first case of a mixed mucus-secreting and oncocytic carcinoma of the thyroid. We also describe the histochemical, immunohistochemical, and ultrastructural features of this tumor. A 59-year-old man complaining of severe bone pain and weight loss underwent clinical and radiologic investigations. The studies revealed a nodule in the left thyroid lobe that was cold by (131)I scintiscan and multiple lytic lesions of the skeleton that showed increased uptake by (99m)Tc-Sestamibi scintiscan. Left hemithyroidectomy was performed and the surgical specimen contained a well-circumscribed nodule of 3 cm in the greatest diameter. Light microscopy showed an oncocytic carcinoma with an area of glandular and papillary proliferation of mucin-producing cells. A double histochemical approach (Alcian blue-periodic acid-Schiff and Alcian blue-high-iron diamine) combined with ultrastructural investigation confirmed the presence of true mucus

The human stomach normally contains high levels of bioactive nitric oxide (NO). This NO derives from salivary nitrate (NO3-) that is converted to nitrite (NO2-) by oral bacteria and thereafter non-enzymatically reduced in the acidic gastric lumen to NO. Nitrate is a common component in vegetables, and after ingestion it is absorbed in the small intestine. Interestingly, circulating nitrate is then concentrated by the salivary glands. Hence, intake of nitrate-rich vegetables results in high levels of NO in the stomach. The physiological effects of the high concentration of NO gas normally present in the gastric lumen have been hitherto unknown, and the present investigations were therefore conducted to address this issue.. NO produced in the gastric lumen after nitrate ingestion increased gastric mucosal blood flow and the thickness of the firmly adherent mucus layer in the stomach. The blood flow and mucus layer are essential defense mechanisms that protect the mucosa from luminal acid and ...

During the different stages of the menstrual cycle there is a variation in the consistency and amount of the mucus secreted from the cervix.. This can be checked by gently placing the middle finger into your vagina and pushing it up around 2cm. The vagina is dry in the first few days after the period. When the body starts to prepare for ovulation, hormone levels rise, and the cervix is now producing mucus that is moist and sticky and is white and creamy in colour. This is the start of the fertile period. Just before ovulation the mucus will get wetter, and more fluid like. It is at this time when one is most fertile. When the mucus becomes thicker and sticky about three days later, you should no longer be fertile.. It is important for a woman to record her menstrual cycle for a few months prior to using this method. With a 28-day cycle, a woman is likely to ovulate 14 days after the first day of her period. Therefore, she can get pregnant between day 8 and day 20 of her cycle (due to the ...

Once upon a time in an enchanted kingdom there was a very large castle which was of the purest ivory white. The castle had turrets that were so high their peaks were completely hidden by the inoffensive fluffy white clouds that graced the blue skies above. In the castle there resided a very old king with a very beautiful daughter called Mucus. Princess Mucus, as the king had no son, was the heiress to the throne but she was, as polite people used to say, somewhat intellectually challenged. The gods had certainly blessed her with the grace and beauty of a dew moistened cherry orchard on a spring morning, but when the brain cells were handed out poor Mucus was off somewhere powdering her tiny wee nose. She was thick as pig shit. The very old king had only days left and was becoming increasingly concerned about the future of his country. Mucus was a sweet girl, granted, but the very old king had some well substantiated doubts as to her abilities when it came to ruling the people of the kingdom. He ...

  • A doctoral thesis at Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, has shown that a permeable mucus layer may be one cause of ulcerative colitis, a chronic bowel disorder. (gu.se)
  • A clear or white mucus mixed with dead white blood cells, proteins and antibodies will be yellow in appearance. (drmyershurt.com)
  • The transport of particles by cilia lining vapor-filled tubes such as the trachea, bronchi, and upper bronchioles requires that the particles be carried by mucus [Sade et al, 1970], and the force that causes mucus flow is generated by the beat of the underlying cilia. (caltech.edu)
  • At the meeting, Lai presented a new strategy for transmitting drug-toting nanoparticles through mucus and preliminary in vivo data describing the therapeutic potential of the engineered particles. (the-scientist.com)
  • If particles engineered to carry the drugs had a hydrophilic and uncharged surface, like viruses, they might be able to pass through mucus. (the-scientist.com)
  • Surprisingly, large particles, 200 and 500 nm in diameter, moved through mucus as if it were water. (the-scientist.com)
  • Mucus itself consists of various proteins, sugars, salts and immune factors , as well as enzymes. (tpxmuscle.com)
  • There's no sexier feeling than snorting or coughing and feeling like you still have some mucus that is too stubborn to leave your throat. (dherbs.com)
  • Sore throat - Frequent coughing and mucus can cause throat irritation. (649mset.org)
  • Secretion of alkaline mucus is necessary to protect the mucous membrane of the stomach from acids released during digestion. (wikipedia.org)
  • Mucus forms a thin film that covers the surface of the mucous membrane, which lines the digestive and breathing tracts, protecting against a number of mechanical, temperature-related and chemical irritations. (tpxmuscle.com)
  • Airway mucus is the secretory product of the goblet cells and the submucosal glands. (nih.gov)
  • This immunofluorescence microscopic image of a cross section of the Colon Chip shows differentiated goblet cells with mucus-containing granules (magenta), nuclei that are positioned close to the basal side attached to the porous membrane (cyan), lateral cell adhesion complexes (yellow), and an apical lumen-exposed brush border (gray). (harvard.edu)
  • Sorry, folks, but drinking that coffee, soda, black or green tea, and other caffeinated beverages can increase the risk of dehydration, which leads to thicker mucus production. (dherbs.com)
  • Mucus thus far has been notoriously difficult to study: its structure quickly disintegrates in surgically removed sections of the gut, the system most often used to study mucus, and no in vitro culture system has been able to reconstitute an in vivo -like mucus layer with the natural structure seen in living intestine outside the human body. (harvard.edu)
  • In this study, I investigated and compared the ability of wild-type LPS (wtLPS) versus mutated LPS (mtLPS) of PA to induce mucus hypersecretion in vivo by using a mouse model of exposure, as well as in vitro by using a human airway epithelial cell line 16HBE. (illinois.edu)
