    Special Issue Description

    Dear Collegues,

    Transmembrane mucins, such as Krebs von den Lungen-6/MUC1, MUC4, and MUC16, are particularly involved in the process of cellular proliferation, growth, and apoptosis and are expressed more prominently in damaged or regenerated epithelial cells.
    The study of the diagnostic and prognostic value of mucins in a variety of lung disorders, such as interstitial lung disease (ILD), lung cancer, and coronavirus disease, has recently attracted increased interest (COVID-19). Due to the inexorably worsening status of patients with concurrent interstitial lung involvement, this has brought attention to the significance of transmembrane mucins in rheumatologic illnesses linked with ILD and the need to detect individuals with lung involvement.
    Additionally, it has been hypothesized that mucins can be used to track the severity of disease since the coronavirus-2 pandemic that caused the severe acute respiratory syndrome outbreak.
    Original research articles, concise reports, and review articles concentrating on the function of transmembrane mucins in the area of lung ailments are requested for this topic.
