MUC5B, also known as Mucin 5B, is a long 5762 amino acid protein that is 596 kDa, expressed on surface airway epithelia, it is a major contributor to the lubricating and viscoelastic properties of whole saliva, normal lung mucus and cervical mucus. Disease research is being performed in relation to MUC5B and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cervicitis, sinusitis, polyposis, pseudomyxoma peritonei, otitis media, dry eye syndrome, ampulla of vater carcinoma, common cold, copd, dental caries, diffuse panbronchiolitis, biliary papillomatosis, panbronchiolitis, atrophic gastritis, Barrett's esophagus, cystic fibrosis lung disease, peptic ulcer, bronchitis, gastritis, sinusitis, asthma, laryngitis, and nasopharyngitis. This protein has been shown to have interactions with AMY1A, AMY1B, AMY1C, HTN1, STATH, and over 40 other proteins in Addition of GalNAc to the Tn antigen via an alpha-1,6 linkage forms a Core 7 glycoprotein, O-linked glycosylation of mucins, Metabolism of proteins, Post-translational protein modification, Addition of galactose to the Tn antigen via an alpha-1,3 linkage forms a Core 8 glycoprotein, Addition of GlcNAc to the Tn antigen via a beta-1,6 linkage forms a Core 6 glycoprotein, Termination of O-glycan biosynthesis, Salivary secretion, Mucin expression in CF via TLRs, EGFR signaling pathways, Mucin expression in CF via IL-6, IL-17 signaling pathways, and Selected targets of CREB1 pathways.
