Mucin gene mRNA levels in broilers challenged with eimeria and/or Clostridium perfringens.
In Avian Dis, 2014
The effects of Eimeria (EM) and Clostridium perfringens (CP) challenges on the mRNA levels of genes involved in mucin (Muc) synthesis (Muc2, Muc5ac, Muc13, and trefoil family factor-2 [TFF2]), inflammation (tumor necrosis factor alpha [TNF-alpha] and interleukin-18 [IL-18]), and metabolic processes (cluster of differentiation [CD]36) in the jejunum of broilers were investigated.
MUC13 mucin augments pancreatic tumorigenesis.
Sioux Falls, United States. In Mol Cancer Ther, 2012
MUC13 overexpression caused a significant increase in cell motility, invasion, proliferation, and anchorage-dependent or -independent clonogenicity while decreasing cell-cell and cell-substratum adhesion in pancreatic cancer.
Mucins and mucin binding proteins in colorectal cancer.
Houston, United States. In Cancer Metastasis Rev, 2004
There are two structurally and functionally distinct classes of mucins: secreted gel-forming mucins (MUC2, MUC5AC, MUC5B, and MUC6) and transmembrane mucins (MUC1, MUC3A, MUC3B, MUC4, MUC12, MUC17), although the products of some MUC genes do not fit well into either class (MUC7, MUC8, MUC9, MUC13, MUC15, MUC16).
