Heat stress caused significant structural damages to chicken small intestinal mucosa and markedly reduced the number of goblet cells
impaired the structural integrity of small intestinal tissues which likely reduced the activity of mucosal digestive enzymes.
Hyperosmolarity also provokes inflammation in the lacrimal gland, meibomian glands and conjunctiva, with the latter leading to a further reduction in goblet cells
and mucin output.
A calcium-activated chloride channel blocker inhibits goblet cell
metaplasia and mucus overproduction.
Recent studies have detected the expression of antimicrobial proreins--such as lysozymes, lactoferrin, secretory IgA, defensins, and Toll-like receptors--in the respiratory mucosal epithelium, goblet cells
, and glandular epithelium.
papillata clearly appeared inside the intestinal epithelial of the villi and we found no parasites inside goblet cells
Conjunctival goblet cell
densities in ocular surface disease.
Although intestinal epithelium represents the cellular frontier of the mucosa, it has long been recognized that the apical surface of this population is covered by a viscoelastic coat including large amounts of trefoil peptides selectively secreted by goblet cells
(Pie et al.
sup] It has been reported the specific chloride channel inhibitors not only inhibit the IL-13 induction of goblet cell
hyperplasia, but also suppress the AHR and the infiltration of eosinophilic.
In the acute stage of colitis caused by acetic acid in mice, TFF3 expression is down-regulated and may be associated with acute reduction of the number of goblet cells
(Tomita et al.
To detect the neutral and acidic glycoconjugates in the goblet cells
as well as for general observation of the colonic morphology, slide sections were processed using Periodic acid-Schifff reagent (PAS) and counterstained with hematoxylin (Liu et al.
Veit/Glan, Austria), and stained with H&E  similar to the immue organs, except for histochemical differentiation of goblet cells
for which the slides were stained using combined alcian blue periodic acid-Schiff technique .
