During this process, mucus is propelled from the airways toward the throat by the continuous ciliary beating of ciliated cells.[34] MUC5B and MUC5AC, the main mucins of the mucus gel, are mainly produced by the goblet cells of the surface epithelium and by the submucosal glands.[33] Moreover, it has been reported that club cells can produce MUC5B in the lower airways.[35] A second constitutive defense lining, the periciliary layer, separates the luminal airway epithelium and mucin gel.

Based on the structure and function of a molecule, mucin is subdivided into 3 categories: membrane-bound mucins (MUC1, MUC3 MUC4, MUC12, MUC16, MUC17), gel-forming (secreted) mucins (MUC2, MUC5AC, MUC5B, MUC6, MUC19), and soluble mucin (MUC7).
