Mucus is a sticky liquid produced and then secreted by specialised cells.


The functions of mucus include protection of the cell surface - for example against drying, or friction - and the trapping of foreign particles, as in the respiratory system.


Mucus contains some enzymes, such as lysozyme, which means it also has an important role in helping prevent infection.
