Caption: Computer-enhanced scanning electron microscopy (SEM) illustration of bacteria-degrading enzymes attacking a microbe trapped in the mucous membrane of a nose. Mucous membranes of the respiratory tract provide the first line of defense for the human immune system. Goblet cells found within the epithelium of the nose secrete mucous which contains a bacteria-degrading enzyme.
