As has been reported previously [5, 27-29], upon repeated administration some [gamma]-secretase inhibitors produce mechanism-based Notch-related side effects including a reduction in thymus weight and an increase in goblet cell hyperplasia in the intestine.
We also examined goblet cell hyperplasia in these mice.
Absent goblet cells. Often only few loose clumps of cells were obtainable.
This study both described the population of GC and their biochemical characteristics in upper airways of healthy rabbits and lead us to suggest that goblet cells participate actively in the course of respiratory disease in rabbits.
Mucin 2 (MUC2), a mucin family glycoprotein, has been located in the cytoplasm of goblet cells including small intestine, colon, bronchus, salivary gland, conjunctiva of the eye, but not in normal gastric mucosa.
