Decrease in the ciliary cell count and increase in the goblet cell
count were seen in both EG and CG, compared to NCG.
Moderate hyperplasia of the bronchial epithelium was present with increased numbers of goblet cells
and a small number of embryonated nematode eggs measuring 40 x 30 [micro]m within parabronchi and atria (Figs 2 and 3).
For the goblet cell
count and villus height measurement, 3 birds per replicate were slaughtered and 1cm section was taken from lower ileum and preserved in 10% buffered formalin.
Mucin 2 (MUC2), a mucin family glycoprotein, has been located in the cytoplasm of goblet cells
including small intestine, colon, bronchus, salivary gland, conjunctiva of the eye, but not in normal gastric mucosa.
E, Glands with mixture of cells containing abundant, tall apical mucin, goblet cells
and mucin-poor eosinophilic cytoplasm, with nuclear grade ranging from low to high.
In a stressful condition under Salmonella Typhimurium challenge, higher goblet cell
density and lower villus surface area have been observed in broilers .
numbers and epithelial proliferation in the conjunctiva of patients with dry eye syndrome treated with cyclosporine.
carcinoids are usually accompanied by acute appendicitis symptoms and findings (8).
Alcian blue-periodic acid Schiff staining (x 400; bar, 25 [micro]m) showing the normal control group with rare goblet cell
and no mucus secretion (A) and the asthmatic model group (B) with increased goblet cell
hyperplasia in airway epithelia and mucus secretion.
Furthermore, IL-25-treated mice showed airway mucosal epithelial shedding, goblet cell
hyperplasia, and excessive subepithelial deposition of collagen I/III/V and fibronectin.,,
The Notch-knockout mice or the use of [gamma]-secretase inhibitor will induce the metaplastic change of the goblet cells
and inhibit the proliferation of intestinal epithelial cells, which might present as novel therapeutic target [6, 7].
In the lung tissue from COPD patients, pathological changes in the airway epithelium, including an injured epithelium structure, goblet cell
hyperplasia, cilia falling off, and thickened basement membranes, were observed (Figure 1(a)).
