    basic FUNCTION
  • contributing to the lubricating and viscoelastic properties of whole saliva
  • possible involvement of MUC5B gene in panbronchiolitis
  • MUC5AC and MUC5B may play an important role in the pathogenesis of chronic rhinosinusitis and nasal polyposis
  • major mucin in the gel phase of sputum in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
  • contribute to the viscoelastic properties of mucus
  • PRKAB1-induced MUC5B expression may be regulated through the MAPK14 signaling pathway in human airway epithelial cells
  • major airway mucin

    protein
  • NRG1beta1 is a novel mediator of MUC5AC and MUC5B expression in bronchial epithelial cells
  • IGF1 constitutes the pathogenic factor in formation of nasal polyps and the regulatory factor in expression of mucins
  • IGF1 induced MUC8 and MUC5B expression is regulated by activation of the ERK1 and MAPK14 signaling pathway in human airway epithelial cells
  • cell & other
    REGULATION
    activated by LEP (leptin up-regulates MUC5B expression in human airway epithelial cells via mitogen-activated protein kinase pathway)
    induced by agonists of TRPV1 and TRPA1 induced MUC5B release in the nasal airways
    PRKAB1, that induced MUC5B expression
    IGF1 (IGF1 induced MUC8 and MUC5B expression, and activated phosphorylation of ERK1/2 and MAPK14)
    Other regulated by PTGDR, that may have suppressive effects in controlling MUC5B overproduction in the airway
