Mucus hypersecretion is characteristic of chronic airway diseases. However, regulatory mechanisms are poorly understood. Human airway epithelial cells grown on permeable supports at the air-liquid interface (ALI) develop a mucociliary morphology resembling that found in vivo. Such cultures provide a model for studying secretory cell lineage,(More)
It is generally accepted that morphine acts presynaptically to inhibit substance P (SP) release from afferent terminals in the trigeminal nucleus. Recent studies, however, provide evidence that opioids produce both inhibitory and excitatory effects on SP release which are concentration- and receptor subtype-dependent. In the present study, we have examined(More)
Chemoresistance is a prevalent issue that accounts for the vast majority of treatment failure outcomes in metastatic cancer. Among the mechanisms of resistance that markedly decrease treatment efficacy, the efflux of drug compounds by ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter proteins can impair adequate drug retention by cancer cells required for therapeutic(More)
