The effect of glycosylation on the antibody recognition of a MUC2 mucin epitope.
MUC2 glycoprotein, produced by the epithelium of the colon and constructed up primarily of repeat items of (1) PTTTPITTTTTVTPTPTPTGTQT(23) , could be overexpressed or underglycosylated in gastrointestinal illnesses, e.g. in case of colon carcinoma. We have now been finding out the epitope construction of the MUC2 by specializing in the repeat unit with the mucin…Read More
The Impact of Monoclonal Antibodies on Airway Smooth Muscle Contractility in Asthma: A Systematic Review
Airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR) represents a central pathophysiological hallmark of bronchial asthma, with airway clean muscle (ASM) being the effector tissue implicated within the onset of AHR. ASM additionally exerts pro-inflammatory and immunomodulatory actions, by secreting a variety of cytokines and chemokines. In bronchial asthma pathogenesis, the overexpression of a number of sort 2 inflammatory mediators together…Read More
