Effect of Titanium Dioxide Nanoparticle Exposure on the Ocular Surface: An Animal Study.
Seoul, South Korea. In Ocul Surf, Feb 2016
Ocular surface staining (n=5 for each group) was performed with rose bengal dye, tear secretion (n=5) was measured using the phenol red thread test, lactic dehydrogenase (LDH) activity (n=5) and MUC5AC levels (n=5) were measured in tears, and the area of the conjunctival goblet cells (n=5) was measured through impression cytology and scanning electron microscopy 24 hours after the last TiO2 instillation.
Adenocarcinoma arising in urinary bladder endocervicosis.
Seto, Japan. In Pathol Int, Feb 2016
Immunohistochemically, the endocervicosis was positive for cytokeratin (CK) 7, AE1/AE3, CAM5.2, HBME1, CA19-9, and estrogen receptor (ER), and negative for CK20, CDX2, progesterone receptor (PR), MUC5AC, and β-catenin.
Altered Mucin and Glycoprotein Expression in Dry Eye Disease.
Berkeley, United States. In Optom Vis Sci, Sep 2015
RESULTS: Although consistent decreases in MUC5AC and altered expression of membrane-bound mucins have been noted in both Sjögren and non-Sjögren dry eye, many reports of altered mucins in dry eye are contradictory.
Helicobacter pylori and gastric mucin expression: A systematic review and meta-analysis.
Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel. In World J Gastroenterol, Sep 2015
When a specific mucin has been studied in more than one paper, we combined the results in a nested meta-analysis of this particular mucin: MUC2, MUC6, STn, Paradoxical con A, Tn, T, Type 1 chain mucin, LeA, SLeA, LeB, AB-PAS, MUC1, and MUC5AC.
Muc5b is required for airway defence.
Houston, United States. In Nature, 2014
MUC5AC and MUC5B are evolutionarily conserved genes that encode structurally related mucin glycoproteins, the principal macromolecules in airway mucus.
