α-Melanocyte-stimulating hormone inhibits tumor necrosis factor α-stimulated MUC5AC expression in human nasal epithelial cells.

Abstract

Mucin hypersecretion is an important clinical feature of several respiratory diseases, including asthma, cystic fibrosis, nasal allergy, rhinitis, and sinusitis. It has been shown that α-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (α-MSH), a proopiomelanocortin (POMC)-derived peptide, has immunomodulatory activities by inhibiting NF-κB activation induced by… (More)
