Abstract

Mucus is the first line of defence against harmful pathogens for various epithelia in the body. Mucus acts as a  physical barrier against gastrointestinal and respiratory irritants and pathogens. It also contains proteins such as immunoglobulins, glycoproteins, and antimicrobial enzymes (such as lysozyme) that inhibit bacterial growth and biofilm production to protect against infection.1
