Metachrony is the coordination of the beat of individual cilia, which prevents collision between cilia in different phases of motion and results in the unidirectional flow of mucus. Ciliary beating produces a current in the superficial layer of the FIGURE 7 A schematic diagram of motion of a single cilium during the rapid forward beat and the slower recovery phase.

4) (5). All cells of the pseudostratified columnar ciliated epithelium contact the basement membrane, but not all reach the epithelial surface. The basement membrane separates the epithelium from the lamina propria, or submucosa. Nasal Epithelium Within the epithelium, three types of cells are identified: basal, goblet, and columnar, which are either ciliated or nonciliated. Basal Cells Basal cells lie on the basement membrane and do not reach the airway lumen. They have an electron-dense cytoplasm and bundles of tonofilaments.

To investigate cells containing IL-4, IL-5, IL-6, and IL-8 in the nasal mucosa of patients with perennial rhinitis and normal subjects (12). The normal nasal mucosa was found to contain cells with positive IL-4 immunoreactivity, with 90% of these cells also staining positive for mast cell tryptase suggesting that they were mast cells. Immunoreactivity for IL-5 and IL-6 was present in 75% of the normal nasal biopsies and IL-8 positive cells were found in all the normal nasal tissue samples. A median 50% of IL-5þ cells and 100% of the IL-6þ cells were mast cells.
