(4) N-acetylcysteine acts to reduce mucus viscosity by splitting disulfide bonds linking proteins present in the mucoproteins
. After proper administration of NAC, the volume of liquefied secretions may increase.
Further studies reveal that banana increases the mucosal defence by promoting mucus secretion increasing mucoprotein
content of mucosa, decreasing the shedding of cells and leakage of protein in gastric secretion in response to ulcerogenous agents, and promotes healing, as shown by the increase in thymidin uptake by gastric mucosal cells and by causing a concentration dependent increase in the eicosanoid stimulation in the incubates of human gastric and colonic mucosa [94, 95].
histochemistry of human mucous acinar cell containing salivary glands: Submandibular and sublingual glands.
Complexes of the condensed tannins of sainfoin (Onobraychis vicifalia scop.) with fractional leaf protein and with submaxillary mucoprotein
and their reversal by polyethylene glycol and pH.
This agglutination results from adsorption of virus particle to the mucoprotein
receptors on the surface of RBCs (Buxton and Fraiser, 1977).
Another drawback in soybean use is the astringency that is generally due to the polyphenolic substances present in soymilk that interact with mucoprotein
in the mouth and throat .
Survey of clinical significance of serum mucoprotein
We cannot exclude Tamm Horsfall protein as a contributor as we did not measure it, but we think that this mucoprotein
is not the principal explanation for the phenomenon seen in SDS gels.
Although low-molecular-weight proteins may react, the reaction is much more sensitive to albumin than to globulin, hemoglobin, immunoglobulin light chains (Bence Jones protein), or mucoprotein
. The capacity for both albumin and low-molecular-weight proteins to react precludes the strip from distinguishing between glomerular and tubular proteinuria.
Endogenous secretions origination: Endogenous secretions originate from digestive secretions sources like bile, saliva, gastric, intestinal, and pancreatic secretions, epithelial intestinal cells and mucoprotein
(De Lange et al.
During the formation of bile stones, and related to the biliary core factor mucoprotein
, [sup] both mucoprotein
secretion and expression of bile and bile duct tissues, showed a pathological and increasing trend in cholelith disease patients.
Following an incidental finding in an index case, we have noticed a strong immunohistochemical positivity of podoplanin (D2-40 as antibody), a transmembrane mucoprotein
commonly expressed in lymphatic endothelial cells, in a prominent linear structure surrounding the cystic spaces of all PCI cases that we have collected.
