The second study elucidates proteins associated with the mucin granules in unstimulated and stimulated conditions further expanding the study to include a diseased cystic fibrosis model and an intestinal cell line. We found that many proteins are conserved across these cell types, suggesting possible conservation in the regulated exocytosis machinery involved in mucin secretion.INTRODUCTION The role of the airway epithelium extends well beyond being the physical barrier between the external ... forms that protects the airways from inhaled pathogens and particulates, while the ciliated epithelial cells transport theanbsp;...
