MUC5B molecule. Computer model showing the structure of a molecule of the protein MUC5B (mucin 5 subtype B). Mucins' key characteristic is their ability to form gels. They are therefore a key component in most gel-like secretions, serving functions from lubrication to cell signalling to forming chemical barriers.
