Gene Information

This gene encodes a member of the mucin family of proteins which are highly glycosylated macromolecular components of mucus secretions. This family member is the major gel-forming mucin in mucus. It is a major contributor to the lubricating and viscoelastic properties of whole saliva normal lung mucus and cervical mucus. This gene has been found to be up-regulated in some human diseases including sinus mucosa of chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) CRS with nasal polyposis chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and H. pylori-associated gastric disease and it may be involved in the pathogenesis of these diseases.
