Claudins in Respiratory Health and Disease

Ioana Matacuta - Bogdan


Abstract: The respiratory epithelium is at the center of respiratory health and disease. The disruption of its barrier function contributes to the pathophysiology of respiratory diseases such as asthma, interstitial lung disease, infections, or cancer. Claudins are one of the major players in epithelial junctions. They can be affected by external environmental factors and induce alterations in the epithelial barrier. The profile of claudins is different in different stages of development or diseases of the lung.
