Cabrita, Inês ; Benedetto, Roberta ; Schreiber, Rainer ; Kunzelmann, Karl


Inflammatory airway diseases, such as asthma, cystic fibrosis (CF), and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), are characterized by mucus hypersecretion and airway plugging.

TMEM16A contributes to mucus hypersecretion and ...
