Abstract: Mucus covers our inner interfaces towards the environment, providing protection while enabling vital interaction with the outside world. The mucus is built around mucin proteins, which are important for our defences against infection and inflammation, but may also contribute to carcinogenesis and tumour progression. These divergent aspects of mucin biology are exemplified in the different studies in this thesis, which are all based on mass spectrometry. The topics covered range from mucin biomar... more
