Gene context of Maxillary Sinus

  • The distribution of different NOS isozymes in mucosal biopsies from sphenoid and maxillary sinus and ethmoidal cells was studied [28].
  • The purpose of this study is to examine if the MUC2 gene is expressed in the nose and maxillary sinus [29].
  • In the present study, HBD-1 and HBD-2 were detected more frequently in the maxillary sinus fluid of patients with inflamed sinuses than in normal controls [30].
  • The three endothlins 1, 2 and 3 (ET-1, ET-2 and ET-3) are 21-amino-acid peptides which in a previous study in the rabbit have been shown to increase both mucociliary activity in the maxillary sinus in vivo and ciliary beat frequency (CBF) in sinus and tracheal samples in vitro [31].
  • METHODS: Maxillary sinus mucosal specimens from patients with chronic sinusitis (n = 10) and from normal subjects (n = 6) were immunostained with specific antibodies directed against the cytokines (IL-1alpha, IL-1beta, IL-6, IL-8 and TNF-alpha) and the CAMs (intercellular adhesion molecule-1, ICAM-1 and vascular CAM-1, VCAM-1) [32].
