Nasal mucus - in medically mUKonazalny secret and in a simple snot - something extremely useful. It protects our airways from hypothermia, dust and debris, of course, from pathogens. It may be called the "first line of defense" against a variety of infections - and act mucus capable not only in the mouth.

A recent study showed that a part of the nasal mucus glycoproteins mucins are able to effectively protect tooth enamel, preventing the bacteria Streptococcus mutans fixed on it and destroy, causing tooth decay. Inspired by these results, the researchers plan to develop technology for producing synthetic analogues of mucins and use them as part of gum, which protects teeth.
 
Researchers have succeeded in isolating glycoprotein MUC5B - apparently, the most common mucin in the composition of mucus. They demonstrated that he alone is able to effectively prevent the consolidation of S. mutans on enamel - and now plan to find out why this is happening.
 
This approach may be more effective than even antibiotics: mucins not kill bacteria, but only do not allow them to destroy the teeth, which means that they do not run into effect the evolutionary mechanisms that contribute to the emergence of resistance.
