Tooth surface-pellicle lipids and their role in the protection of dental enamel against lactic-acid diffusion in man.
The lipid content and composition of the enamel pellicle from caries-resistant (CR) and caries-susceptible (CS) subjects and their effect on its ability to retard the diffusion of lactic acid wereExpand

Role of endothelin-1 and constitutive nitric oxide synthase in gastric mucosal resistance to indomethacin injury: effect of antiulcer agents.
BACKGROUND Endothelin-1 (ET-1) and nitric oxide, recognized key mediators implicated in the pathophysiology of gastric mucosal injury, are known to exert opposing effects on the inflammatoryExpand

Src-kinase-dependent epidermal growth factor receptor transactivation in salivary mucin secretion in response to β-adrenergic G-protein-coupled receptor activation
The principal regulatory factors that control the flow and make-up of salivary secretion are neurotransmitters, released by parasympathetic and sympathetic innervation, that trigger activation of GExpand

Isolation and characterization of oligosaccharides from rat colonic mucus glycoprotein.
The structure of carbohydrate units of rat colonic mucus glycoproteins was investigated. Alkaline borohydride reductive cleavage of the glycoprotein resulted in the release of a series of reducedExpand

Transforming growth factor alpha and epidermal growth factor in protection and healing of gastric mucosal injury.
Transforming growth factor alpha (TGF) and epidermal growth factor (EGF) present in the gastric mucosa are polypeptides with similar biologic activity. This study compares the activity of TGF and EGFExpand

Salivary mucins in oral mucosal defense.
1. Salivary mucins are well recognized as an important factor in the preservation of the health of the oral cavity. These large glycoproteins play a major role in the formation of protective coatingsExpand

Structural features of carbohydrate chains in human salivary mucins.
1. The structure of carbohydrate chains in the low and high molecular weight mucus glycoprotein forms from submandibular-sublingual saliva of individuals with blood group B was investigated. 2.Expand

Lipolytic activity of Campylobacter pylori: effect of colloidal bismuth subcitrate (De-Nol)
Infection by Campylobacter pylori appears to play a major role in the etiology of gastric disease, but the nature of impairment evoked by this pathogen in gastric mucosal defense is not wellExpand

Induction of tumor necrosis factor-alpha and apoptosis in gastric mucosal injury by indomethacin: effect of omeprazole and ebrotidine.
BACKGROUND The gastric injury associated with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) therapy has been linked to the detrimental effects of the agents on the processes of prostaglandinExpand
