Mucus: The viscous secretion of mucous membranes. It contains mucin, white blood cells, water, inorganic salts, and exfoliated cells.Cervix Mucus: A slightly alkaline secretion of the endocervical glands. The consistency and amount are dependent on the physiological hormone changes in the menstrual cycle. It contains the glycoprotein mucin, amino acids, sugar, enzymes, and electrolytes, with a water content up to 90%. The mucus is a useful protection against the ascent of bacteria and sperm into the uterus. (From Dictionary of Obstetrics and Gynecology, 1988)Mucins: High molecular weight mucoproteins that protect the surface of EPITHELIAL CELLS by providing a barrier to particulate matter and microorganisms. Membrane-anchored mucins may have additional roles concerned with protein interactions at the cell surface.Mucociliary Clearance: A non-specific host defense mechanism that removes MUCUS and other material from the LUNGS by ciliary and secretory activity of the tracheobronchial submucosal glands. It is measured in vivo as mucus transfer, ciliary beat frequency, and clearance of radioactive tracers.Mucin-2: A gel-forming mucin found predominantly in SMALL INTESTINE and variety of mucous membrane-containing organs. It provides a protective, lubricating barrier against particles and infectious agents.Gastric Mucins: Mucins that are found on the surface of the gastric epithelium. They play a role in protecting the epithelial layer from mechanical and chemical damage.Mucin 5AC: A gel-forming mucin that is primarily found on the surface of gastric epithelium and in the RESPIRATORY TRACT. Mucin 5AC was originally identified as two distinct proteins, however a single gene encodes the protein which gives rise to the mucin 5A and mucin 5C variants.Goblet Cells: A glandular epithelial cell or a unicellular gland. Goblet cells secrete MUCUS. They are scattered in the epithelial linings of many organs, especially the SMALL INTESTINE and the RESPIRATORY TRACT.Exocrine Glands: Glands of external secretion that release its secretions to the body's cavities, organs, or surface, through a duct.Mucin-5B: A gel-forming mucin that is predominantly expressed by submucosal glands of airway tissues and the SUBLINGUAL GLAND. It is one of the principal components of high molecular weight salivary mucin.Intestinal Mucosa: Lining of the INTESTINES, consisting of an inner EPITHELIUM, a middle LAMINA PROPRIA, and an outer MUSCULARIS MUCOSAE. In the SMALL INTESTINE, the mucosa is characterized by a series of folds and abundance of absorptive cells (ENTEROCYTES) with MICROVILLI.Gastric Mucosa: Lining of the STOMACH, consisting of an inner EPITHELIUM, a middle LAMINA PROPRIA, and an outer MUSCULARIS MUCOSAE. The surface cells produce MUCUS that protects the stomach from attack by digestive acid and enzymes. When the epithelium invaginates into the LAMINA PROPRIA at various region of the stomach (CARDIA; GASTRIC FUNDUS; and PYLORUS), different tubular gastric glands are formed. These glands consist of cells that secrete mucus, enzymes, HYDROCHLORIC ACID, or hormones.Respiratory Mucosa: The mucous membrane lining the RESPIRATORY TRACT, including the NASAL CAVITY; the LARYNX; the TRACHEA; and the BRONCHI tree. The respiratory mucosa consists of various types of epithelial cells ranging from ciliated columnar to simple squamous, mucous GOBLET CELLS, and glands containing both mucous and serous cells.Periodic Acid-Schiff Reaction: A histochemical technique for staining carbohydrates. It is based on PERIODIC ACID oxidation of a substance containing adjacent hydroxyl groups. The resulting aldehydes react with Schiff reagent to form a colored product.Expectorants: Agents that increase mucous excretion. Mucolytic agents, that is drugs that liquefy mucous secretions, are also included here.Trachea: The cartilaginous and membranous tube descending from the larynx and branching into the right and left main bronchi.Mucin-3: A membrane-bound mucin subtype that is primarily found in INTESTINAL MUCOSA. Two closely-related subtypes of this protein have been identified in humans.Bronchi: The larger air passages of the lungs arising from the terminal bifurcation of the TRACHEA. They include the largest two primary bronchi which branch out into secondary bronchi, and tertiary bronchi which extend into BRONCHIOLES and PULMONARY ALVEOLI.Respiratory System: The tubular and cavernous organs and structures, by means of which pulmonary ventilation and gas exchange between ambient air and the blood are brought about.Viscosity: The resistance that a gaseous or liquid system offers to flow when it is subjected to shear stress.

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)

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, ...
The gastroduodenal mucus layer is considered the primary mucosal protective barrier, especially important in the maintenance of a mucosal pH gradient. Thus, the measurement of the mucus layer thickness in various disease states could advance our understanding of gastroduodenal pathophysiology. We present a novel method for measuring the mucus layer in endoscopic biopsy material and compare layer thickness in Helicobacter pylori (HP)-negative and HP-positive specimens. Endoscopic biopsies were obtained from 17 patients with gastroduodenal mucosa harboring IIP and from 15 patients without current HP colonization. The thickness of the mucus layer was measured in fresh specimens by the phase-contrast dark-field microscopy technique. In patients with confirmed IIP infection, the thickness of the mucus layer (mean ± SD) was 0.093 ± 0.033 mm in duodenal, 0.085 ± 0.027 mm in antral, and 0.105 ± 0.033 mm in corporal mucosa. In patients without concomitant HP colonization, the thickness of the ...
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.. These are the foods that speed up the mucus production process and make you feel miserable along the way.. But, if you are still feeling the mucus even after giving up on all these foods, then you might just have an allergy on a food you are ...
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 ...

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 ...
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 transportability of the mucus layer on airway surfaces by the cilia is essential for maintaining normal lung health. This mucociliary clearance function of the airway epithelia is compromised in some diseases, notably CF, in which the mucus accumulates in and obstructs the airways, resulting in microbiological colonization. The pathogenic mechanism of this mucus obstruction is incompletely understood. The results of the present study provide evidence that an abnormal fluid environment on the airway surfaces corrupts the normal unfolding process of the MUC5B mucin glycoprotein, leading to the secretion of a dense, compact form of MUC5B that likely impairs its clearance by cilia.. The biophysical properties of the airway mucus layer are strongly influenced by qualitative and quantitative changes in mucins, the dominant macromolecules in airway mucus. Our group has previously shown that mucus secretions from CF lungs contain hyperconcentrated mucins that alter the osmotic pressure dynamics ...
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 ...
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.. ...

fluid produced by mucous membranes (mucosa), lining various cavities in the body, moistening and protecting the lining of the digestive, reproductive (like cervical mucus), respiratory, and urinary tracts, and other body systems. Mucus can be thin or thick, clear, green, yellow or white. Mucus found on stool is usually white. In small amounts it is usually normal. Increased amounts of mucus in the stool can occur in Irritable Bowel Syndrome, allergies/celiac disease, with constipation or diarrhea, or more serious conditions such as bowel obstruction, cancers of the colon or rectum. Green or yellow mucus in stool could be caused by a parasitic infection or yeast overgrowth. ...
Mucus in Throat Mucus is soft moist substance produced in the throat which is responsible for performing various important functions like cleansing the nasal cavity and filtering the foreign substance from entering your respiratory tract. Mucus (also called phlegm) is secreted in the body during the process of filtering the pollutants and for sending only pure form of air. Mucus also does the function of fighting the infection and humidifying the air before it enters the nose. The problem arises only when the bacteria or virus gets trapped in this secretion that causes irritation and bad smell. The best remedy is to thin out the secreted mucus and expelling it from the throat. ...
TUESDAY, April 25, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- Snot, phlegm and other forms of mucus may not be everyones favorite subject, but scientists say synthetic mucus might help save lives.. Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology said the lab-made goo could help combat antibiotic-resistant bacteria.. By replicating mucus natural ability to control dangerous bacteria, the hope is to find new ways to fight infections.. "I am so excited about mucus because I am convinced it can help us find new strategies for protecting us from infections, in particular those that relate to an overgrowth of harmful microbes," said study author Katharina Ribbeck, an MIT professor of tissue engineering.. According to background notes with the study, a persons body produces about a gallon of mucus every day. Far from being a hindrance, mucus provides a protective coating on more than 2,000 square feet of internal surfaces, including the digestive tract, nose, mouth, eyes, lungs and female reproductive ...
Mucosal surfaces are covered with mucus - a sticky layer that serves as a protective barrier at the interface between the environment and animal tissues. It is the mucus that traps the phage, so the phage are kept in the mucus to destroy bacterial pathogens before they can actually reach the tissues and potentially cause infection. The mucus, then, provides the stage for a unique form of symbiosis between animals and viruses. How?. To understand the answer to this question, it is important to note that phage have mostly one thing in mind - reproduction. In order to reproduce, phage multiply inside bacteria and disintegrate them in order to exit and infect more bacteria. In other words, the process of phage reproduction leads to bacterial death. Thus, phage help us control bacterial pathogens while, at the same time, helping themselves to flourish.. Jeremy Barr (San Diego State University) and his collaborators propose a detailed model to explain how mucus traps phage for protection against ...

I asked an ENT Dr. Yellow/green. Even pneumonia, bronchitis and other lung diseases may, in the initial stage, lead to production of white phlegm. This usually happens first thing in the morning. Mucus can turn blue because of a certain bacteria called Pseudomonas pyocyanea. They can also be signs of a more serious health condition. Post Nasal Drip (PND) may be simply defined as excess mucus dripping down from the sinuses to the back of an individuals throat. Ultrasound involves using an ultrasonic scalpel which emits high energy waves to. sore throat and nasal congestion. Thick clear/yellow mucus but has tiny streaks of blood. Additionally, bloody mucus may show streaks that are very bright in characteristic red color, if not littered throughout. This includes the digestive, reproductive, respiratory, and urinary tracts. In fact, the most frequent reason for coughing up blood is ruptured small blood vessel brought by coughing or bronchial infection. If it lasts for 3 or more stools, the baby ...
Asthma occurs when the airflow moving in and out of the lungs are blocked by muscle squeezing, swelling, and excess mucus. In response to a trigger, an asthmatics airways become narrowed and inflamed, causing blocking of the airways that result in wheezing and/or coughing symptoms. Air becomes trapped in the air sacs, not allowing for the proper exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide. This trapped air leads to a low oxygen level in the body, thus, triggering an asthma attack. During an asthma attack, the mucus-producing cells within the airway increase their output, causing excess mucus that blocks the airway. Parts of the airway become entirely blocked with the combination of airway narrowing, mucus plugging, and airway inflammation. These attacks vary in length. A single episode can be over in minutes, or continue for hours or even days. In between asthma episodes the patient may be totally symptom free. Other patients may have slight symptoms such as chest tightness or a hacking cough.. This ...

Cystic fibrosis (CF) disrupts respiratory host defenses, allowing bacterial infection, inflammation, and mucus accumulation to progressively destroy the lungs. Our previous studies revealed that mucus with abnormal behavior impaired mucociliary transport in newborn CF piglets prior to the onset of secondary manifestations. To further investigate mucus abnormalities, here we studied airway surface liquid (ASL) collected from newborn piglets and ASL on cultured airway epithelia. Fluorescence recovery after photobleaching revealed that the viscosity of CF ASL was increased relative to that of non-CF ASL. CF ASL had a reduced pH, which was necessary and sufficient for genotype-dependent viscosity differences. The increased viscosity of CF ASL was not explained by pH-independent changes in HCO3- concentration, altered glycosylation, additional pH-induced disulfide bond formation, increased percentage of nonvolatile material, or increased sulfation. Treating acidic ASL with hypertonic saline or ...

The thought of mucus disturbs many people. Mucus is beneficial as the first defense of the airways. The mucus lining traps inhaled particles and allows them to be cleared from the airway by cilia and cough. The mucus layer also prevents dehydration and desiccation of the airway surface and provides a nutrient milieu for the ciliated epithelium. Mucus can also be quite bad. Airway mucus retention due to hypersecretion or poor mucus clearance is a characteristic of many airway diseases including cystic fibrosis, chronic bronchitis, bronchiectasis, and asthma. ...

News: Jul 19, 2012 A doctoral thesis at Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, has found that people with chronic bowel disease have a permeable mucus layer that permits harmful bacterial to attack the intestinal wall. The results points the way to new treatment methods for ulcerative colitis and other chronic bowel disorders. The colon contains many different kinds of bacteria that are vital to health but that can also cause disease. The colon produces a mucus layer, which forms a barrier between bacteria and the intestinal wall, to protect itself against their harmful effects. ...
Mucus is a slippery, viscous, water-based fluid produced by specialized mucous membranes. Mucous membranes line the respiratory, digestive, and reproductive tracts. Mucus contains hydrophilic proteins, immunoglobulins, enzymes, and shed cells, and serves a variety of functions in different circumstances. For example, mucus in the nose and respiratory tract serves to trap dust and other contaminants before they reach the lungs; in the gut it lubricates the lining; in the female reproductive tract, cervical mucus changes its properties during the menstrual cycle so as to promote or retard the passage of sperm. ...

The mucus gel covers the wet epithelia that forms the inner lining of the body. It constitutes our first line of defense protecting the body from infections and other deleterious molecules. Failure of the mucus barrier can lead to the inflammation of the mucosa such as in inflammatory bowel diseases. Unfortunately, there are no effective strategies that reinforce the mucus barrier properties to recover or enhance its ability to protect the epithelium. Herein, we describe a mucus engineering approach that addresses this issue where we physically crosslink the mucus gel with low molar mass chitosan variants to reinforce its barrier functions ...

Background. Next to smoking and environmental tobacco smoke exposure (ETS), occupational exposures have been reported as risk factors for both chronic mucus hypersecretion (CMH) and COPD in the general population. As not all subjects with COPD have CMH and vice versa, we investigated whether risk factors for CMH are similar in subjects with and without COPD.. Methods. 1,479 subjects with and 8,529 without COPD (18-89 yrs), participating in the general population based LifeLines cohort, completed questionnaires on respiratory symptoms, ETS, smoking habits and employment status, and underwent spirometry. Exposure to occupational risk factors was assessed using the ALOHA-job exposure matrix (JEM). Analyses were performed using multiple logistic regression models.. Results. The prevalence of CMH was significantly higher in subjects with than without COPD (8.7% versus 3.4%, p=0.001). In COPD, a significantly higher risk for CMH was associated with pack-years smoking and ETS and in non-COPD with male ...

Examining the mucus of your vagina is very effective way to know whats happening with your cycle. Estrogen is the hormone that regulates the condition and consistency of vaginal mucus. At the beginning and the end of the menstrual cycle when estrogen levels are low, there will be very little mucus. What little there is tends to be sticky, whitish in color, and bitter or salty in taste. As your cycle continues estrogen levels increase resulting in an increase in vaginal mucus. The fluids will become slippery. Ovulation, the release of an egg from the ovary, will soon occur. While you are ovulating and fertile, the mucus will be more translucent and stretchy with a sweeter taste. Cover the tips of your fingers with the mucus and pull them apart slowly. Long fibers will stretch between them. This type of mucus will be around for about four or five days, starting with a day or two before ovulation. You are most fertile during this time. Since sperm can remain alive in your body for up to a week, ...
The antimicrobial capacity of polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN) in the presence of dextran sulfate (DS) and heparin, which are similar to naturally occurring mucosubstance in rabbit PMN granules was investi~ gated. The cytochemical activity of PMN granules in phagocytosing and nonphagocytosing cells with and without DS or heparin were also evaluated. No evidence for uptake of DS or heparin was obtained when either phagocytosing or nonphagocytosing PMN were incubated in the presence of these two mucosubstances. Specifically, they did not affect cytochemical reactivity of acid phosphatase in cytoplasmic granules or phagocytic vacuoles at the ultrastructural level. The sulfated acid mucosubstance did not affect reactivity of cytoplasmic granules for acid phosphatase, alkaline phosphatase, peroxidase, dipeptidyl aminopeptidase ,I (DAP I) or acid mucosubstance at the light microscopic or ultrastructural level. DAP I activity was demonstrated in the primary granules of PMN for the first time and ...

Connie K. Ho for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online. Researchers from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill recently published a study on their work to understand how human lungs clean out mucus from colds and allergy, making the airways free of foreign matter that may be toxic or infectious to the body.. The findings, published in a recent issue of the journal Science, will help scientists identify issues related to human lung diseases like asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and cystic fibrosis (CF).. "The air we breathe isnt exactly clean, and we take in many dangerous elements with every breath," remarked co-author Michael Rubinstein in a prepared statement. "We need a mechanism to remove all the junk we breathe in, and the way its done is with a very sticky gel called mucus that catches these particles and removes them with the help of tiny cilia.". The researchers believe that there are different parts of the lung that assists in this cleaning process.. "The ...

Asthma is a chronic condition with unknown pathogenesis, and recent evidence suggests that enhanced airway epithelial chloride (Cl-) secretion plays a role in the disease. However, the molecular mechanism underlying Cl- secretion and its relevance in asthma pathophysiology remain unknown. To determine the role of the solute carrier family 26, member 9 (SLC26A9) Cl- channel in asthma, we induced Th2-mediated inflammation via IL-13 treatment in wild-type and Slc26a9-deficient mice and compared the effects on airway ion transport, morphology, and mucus content. We found that IL-13 treatment increased Cl- secretion in the airways of wild-type but not Slc26a9-deficient mice. While IL-13-induced mucus overproduction was similar in both strains, treated Slc26a9-deficient mice exhibited airway mucus obstruction, which did not occur in wild-type controls. In a study involving healthy children and asthmatics, a polymorphism in the 3′ UTR of SLC26A9 that reduced protein expression in vitro was associated ...

The treatment aims at curing the underlying problem thats present. If the dog is suffering from a food allergy, the vet will put the pet on a food trial to find out whats causing the allergic reaction. In most cases the dog will stop passing mucus in his stools once he is fed a hypoallergenic diet. Conversely, if the dog is suffering from a parasite infection, the vet will administer certain drugs to kill the worms that are present. These medications have to be administered very carefully as the dogs body may suffer from a shock if too many worms die all at once. If the cause of the mucus is associated with dietary indiscretion, the vet will ask you to keep the dog on a bland diet for a few days so that the symptoms subside.

Well refusing to get sick didnt really work. I got/am sick anyway. My peakflows have been holding steady in the above 78% range mainly green at that. Ive pretty much expelled a quarter of a tissue box of mucus out my nose today. Along with coughing up some lovely sticky gross mucus specimens. My energy is definitely better than it has been in a while. The only problem is that I cant really get much accomplished since I just keep sneezing out more and more mucus. Im not quite sure where its coming from although as my friend Maria told me on facebook: "Thats the heck of it, unlike money, you can get rid of it and always make more." Really reassuring there that I will get rid of it anytime soon. Oh well. In the mean time Ill keep pushing fluids and ventolin so it all stays loose, thin, and open.

The mucus-secreting columnar cells lining the luminal surface and the pits are joined near their free surfaces to each other by tight junctions (Ham l974). It is surmized that this arrangement forms one of the mechanisms by which the underlying layers are protected against luminal acid. The supranuclear portions of the cells just below their free surfaces contain dense, homogeneous, spherical or ovoid granules consisting of a type of mucigen (Bloom and Fawcett l975). Upon release into the lumen, the granules give rise to the layer of mucus that covers the luminal surface of the mucosa. In the cells of the gastric pits, the granules become progressively less abundant at deeper levels, and in the bottom of the pits they from only a thin layer immediately beneath the cell surface. Cells of this kind continue into the necks of the gastric glands. Under physiological conditions, the surface mucus cells are continuously desquamated into the lumen and are completely replaced every 3 days (Ham l974; ...
Cystic fibrosis (CF) lung disease is characterized by early and persistent mucus accumulation and neutrophilic inflammation in the distal airways. Identification of the factors in CF mucopurulent secretions that perpetuate CF mucoinflammation may provide strategies for novel CF pharmacotherapies. We show that IL-1β, with IL-1α, dominated the mucin prosecretory activities of supernatants of airway mucopurulent secretions (SAMS). Like SAMS, IL-1β alone induced MUC5B and MUC5AC protein secretion and mucus hyperconcentration in CF human bronchial epithelial (HBE) cells. Mechanistically, IL-1β induced the sterile α motif-pointed domain containing ETS transcription factor (SPDEF) and downstream endoplasmic reticulum to nucleus signaling 2 (ERN2) to upregulate mucin gene expression. Increased mRNA levels of IL1B, SPDEF, and ERN2 were associated with increased MUC5B and MUC5AC expression in the distal airways of excised CF lungs. Administration of an IL-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1Ra) blocked ...

Air is drawn in to the lungs via the trachea due to low pressure in the lungs, created by movement of the ribs and diaphragm. The trachea divides into two bronchi which carry air to and from each lung. Within in each lung there are bronchioles leading to aveoli which are the site of gas exchange.. Everyone has a thin layer of mucus produced continuously from goblet cells in the walls of the airway. Any dust, debris or microorganisms become trapped in the mucus and are continually removed by the wave-like beating of cilia that cover the epithelial cells.. People with CF have mucus that is drier than usual resulting in a sticky mucus layer that the cilia find difficult to move. This increases the chances of lung infection and makes gas exchange less efficient.. White blood cells fight the infections and pathogens within the mucus but as they die they break down, releasing DNA which makes the mucus even stickier. Repeated infections can weaken the bodys ability to fight the pathogens and cause ...

steel ball blocks the conical canal of the FLUTTER®. During exhalation, the actual position of the steel ball is the result of an equilibrium between the pressure of the exhaled air, the force of gravity on the ball, and the angle of the cone where the contact with the ball occurs. As the steel ball rolls and bounces up and down, it creates an opening and closing cycle which repeats itself many times throughout each exhalation (Figure 3). The net result is that oscillations in expiratory pressure and airflow are produced. When the oscillation frequency approximates the resonance frequency of the pulmonary system, endobronchial pressure oscillations are amplified and result in vibrations of the airways. The vibrations produced by these oscillations cause the fluttering sensation from which the FLUTTER® derived its name. These vibrations loosen mucus from the airway walls. The intermittent increases in endobronchial pressure decrease the collapsibility of the airways during exhalation, ...
The tissues turnover of unperturbed mature lung is usually amazingly decrease. is becoming reality now. In this review, we will spotlight the advancement of our understanding in lung regeneration and advancement of come cell mediated restorative strategies in dealing with incurable lung illnesses. H3FL derivation of lung progenitors from pluripotent embryonic come cells (ESCs) and inducible pluripotent come cells (iPSC) is usually put out within transgenic lung area, which perform, nevertheless, consist of ciliated and mucus-secreting cells 162635-04-3 [34]. Hence, Nkx2.1 is recognised as a get better at gene in maintaining the lung morphogenesis as well as cytodifferentiation of specific epithelial cell lineages [24]. Nevertheless, targeted gene mutation research consult that while Nkx2.1 is not required for preliminary standards of lung primordia it is necessary for pulmonary advancement and cell difference [33,42]. The specific regulatory function of Nkx2.1 in pulmonary cytodifferentiation is ...

Middle ear effusion was obtained from children with chronic secretory otitis media undergoing myringotomy. The effusions contained about 120 mg/ml non-dialysable solids, of which 18-31% was mucus glycoprotein. The purified mucus glycoprotein had a composition characteristic of other mucus glycoproteins. Amino acid analysis of the glycoprotein indicates a protein core consisting of glycosylated regions resistant to proteolysis and non-glycosylated regions susceptible to proteolysis. Analysis of the mucus glycoprotein by gel filtration on Sepharose 2B showed that reduction caused a decrease in hydrodynamic size and proteolysis caused a further decrease. The difference was confirmed by sedimentation coefficient and viscosity measurements. The reduced glycoprotein had an intrinsic viscosity of 0.113 ml/mg and an S0(20) of 15.2S compared to a value of 0.018 ml/mg and 9.6S for the proteolytically digested glycoprotein. These results suggest a model for this middle ear mucus glycoprotein, in which the native
Objectives: To compare quality and sperm penetrability of mid-cycle cervical mucus between LNG-IUS users and controls.; Methods: An investigator-blinded study microscopically assessed quality of mid-cycle cervical mucus. Assessments of sperm penetration using in-vitro sperm penetration tests (SCMPT) included depth, density, motility, and WHO Simplified Slide Test (SST).; Results: Data from 15 LNG-IUS users and 16 controls showed 14% percent LNG-IUS users had fertile mucus (CMA score ≥10) vs. 69% of controls (p= 0.004). SST showed significantly less sperm penetration for LNG-IUS users than controls (0% vs. 64.3%, p < 0.001). SCMPT demonstrated no sperm mucus penetration for users at 2 and 6 hours (0% vs. 85% with 2h score ≥6, p < 0.001; 0% vs. 79% at 6h, p < 0.001).; Conclusion: Mid-cycle cervical mucus of LNG-IUS users is poor quality and prevents endocervical sperm transport yielding very high contraceptive efficacy ...

AU - Lee, Heung Man. PY - 2004/6/1. Y1 - 2004/6/1. N2 - Backgrounds: Excess mucus production and hypersecretion characterize upper airway diseases. The primary mechanisms leading to mucus hypersecretion in chronic rhinosinus inflammation are not well understood. Mucus hypersecretion is commonly accompanied by goblet cell and submucosal gland cell hyperplasia. It is important to identify which mucin gene messenger RNAs (mRNAs) are expressed in the sinus mucosa. Objectives: To investigate the expression of MUC5AC and MUC5B mRNAs and localization of these proteins in human sinus mucosa and to compare the expression of MUC5AC and MUC5B mRNAs in normal and in chronic sinus mucosa. Design: Twenty chronic maxillary sinusitis mucosa samples and 20 normal maxillary sinus mucosa samples were obtained; RNAs were ...
At the time we started to develop the strain-specific real-time PCR assay for L. rhamnosus GG we did not have the genome sequence on the basis of which the primers could have been designed. Instead, we chose to sequence a unique RAPD fragment of L. rhamnosus GG as the basis of the assay. Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG is a well-known probiotic marketed all over the world in dairy products and in capsules. Although more than 400 scientific studies on L. rhamnosus GG have been reported, the studies still go on actively. The real-time quantitative PCR method for L. rhamnosus GG was developed for clinical studies to avoid the laborious cultivation and characterization of bacterial isolates in faecal samples. Strain-specific PCR can be run straight from the DNA of mixed populations and quantification is also possible using real-time PCR.. The L. rhamnosus GG-specific primers designed were shown to amplify the PCR product only from the DNA of L. rhamnosus GG. The specificity of the primers was shown in ...
