This study examined differential expression of several mucin genes in the human submandibular gland and trachea, MUC7 tissue and species specificity, and MUC7 genetic polymorphism. Mucin gene expression examined by RT-PCR indicated that MUC1, MUC4 and MUC7 are expressed in the human submandibular gland, while MUC1, MUC2, MUC4, MUC5 and MUC7 are expressed in the human trachea. Northern blot analysis confirmed the expression of MUC7 in the human trachea and MUC4 in the human submandibular gland… CONTINUE READING
