The mucus produced by these larger and more numerous goblet cells and submucosal glands
is more abundant and more viscous than normal.
We also evaluated virus attachment to submucosal glands
These pseudodiverticula represent dilated excretory ducts of deep submucosal glands
of the esophagus.
Furthermore, the vector can introduce genes to not only apical surfaces but also submucosal glands
where CFTR primarily expresses.
14) It is believed that this mucosal damage leads to scarring and eventual occlusion of the ducts of the submucosal glands
The team's detailed cellular assays uncovered chromic bronchitis, inflamed bronchial submucosal glands
and microscopic holes -- subtle but "pretty severe" lung damage that would elude detection by most coroners, Sherwin says.
Immunohistochemical examination detected influenza virus antigens in type II pneumocytes, in epithelial cells in the upper airways, and in submucosal glands
Focal SMSA positivity was seen in the abluminal ductal structures but was not as strong as in the surrounding normal submucosal glands
19] These nerve fibers innervate laryngeal blood vessels and submucosal glands
Samples were scored for influenza virus-associated inflammation in bronchi (bronchitis), bronchial submucosal glands
(bronchoadenitis), bronchioles (bronchiolitis), and alveoli (alveolitis).
What causes the goblet cells and submucosal glands
to undergo these changes is the repeated exposure of the tracheobronchial tree to the irritants and insults of cigarette smoke.
The problem in mucus in CF is inadequate salt (versus too much salt) in the epithelial fluid, and subsequently, in the water, in secretions and within the secretory cells, the goblet and submucosal glands
in the respiratory tract of the CF patient.
