Clinicopathological characteristics of duodenal epithelial neoplasms: focus on tumors with a gastric mucin
phenotype (pyloric gland-type tumors).
The gastric mucus secretion, the content of gastric mucin
and their precursor hexosamine, is reduced.
Munich, (QNA) - A team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has now succeeded in demonstrating that contact lenses coated with purified porcine gastric mucin
do not cause damage to the eye anymore.
 Mucus release promotes epithelial recovery by neutralizing luminal acid, protecting against pepsin, oxidants, and other damaging agents  with hexosamine as the main constituent of gastric mucin
Conclusion: Permanent impairment in the conjugation of cell and tissue components in mucosa accompanied by the change of an epithelial layer synthetic function with the impaired physicochemical properties of gastric mucin
results in intestinal metaplasia as early as in childhood.
(black mulberries) and Rubus niveus Thunb (raspberries), assessing their antioxidant properties and effects on gastric mucin
content, as well as on [H.sup.+]/[K.sup.+]-ATPase activity.
Effect of acetylsalicylic acid on gastric mucin
viscosity, permeability to hydrogen ion, and susceptibility to pepsin.
Likewise, HGF aids angiogenesis, through multiple mechanisms including COX activation, and increases EGF expression that eventually accelerates gastroduodenal ulcer healing by increasing gastric mucin
and diminishing gastric acid secretion .
We demonstrated the molecular mechanisms of its antiulcerogenic action: enhanced cytoprotection accomplished by induction of gastric mucin
secretion and [PGE.sub.2] biosynthesis and antioxidant and antiinflammatory properties.

synthesis," IUBMB Life, vol.
In a study by Araya (12) and Neira, (26) the metacyclic trypomastigotes using gp82 present in its membrane were shown to promote adherence to gastric mucin
. Thus, host-parasite interaction is mediated by gp82 in cells that trigger signals that induce calcium release, an event essential for the internalization of T.
Expression cloning of gastric mucin
complementary DNA and localization of mucin gene expression.
