Details for anatomical structure: peritoneal mesothelial cell

EndoNet ID: ENC00384

To link to the content of EndoNet use the EndoNet ID that is given on the detail pages in the format ENX0000, where X is a place holder for the type of the component (e. g. R for receptor or C for anatomical structure).
As URL for the linking append this ID to the detail page for this type of component.
For an hormone that would be:

It is also possible to use the search of EndoNet to link to the right detail page. The URL should look like

http://endonet.bioinf.med.uni-goettingen.de/search/ENC00000
If the search pattern is unambigious the user is directed to the corresponding detail page.

Synonyms

General information

The mesothelium is composed of an extensive monolayer of specialized cells (mesothelial cells) that line the body's serous cavities and internal organs. The main purpose of these cells is to produce a lubricating fluid that is released between layers, providing a slippery, non-adhesive and protective surface to facilitate intracoelomic movement.

      Secreted hormones

      • Hormone: TGF-beta 1

        Influenced by:

        • leptin receptor
          in peritoneal_mesothelial_cell
          • The TGF-beta synthesis induced by leptin was amplified by glucose through increased leptin receptor expression. [1]

      Receptors

      • Receptor: leptin receptor

        Influences:

        • TGF-beta 1
          • The TGF-beta synthesis induced by leptin was amplified by glucose through increased leptin receptor expression. [1]
