Proteoglycan expression correlates with the phenotype of malignant and non-malignant EBV-positive B-cell lines.
Novosibirsk, Russia. In Oncotarget, Jan 2016
In this study, expression of major proteoglycans (syndecan-1, glypican-1, perlecan, versican, brevican, aggrecan, NG2, serglycin, decorin, biglycan, lumican, CD44), heparan sulphate (HS) metabolic system (EXT1/2, NDST1/2, GLCE, HS2ST1, HS3ST1/2, HS6ST1/2, SULF1/2, HPSE) and extracellular matrix (ECM) components (collagen 1A1, fibronectin, elastin) in primary B cells and EBV carrying cell lines with different phenotypes, patterns of EBV-host cell interaction and viral latency stages (type I-III) was investigated.
Role of heparan sulfate proteoglycans in optic disc and stalk morphogenesis.
Indianapolis, United States. In Dev Dyn, 2014
RESULTS: To study HSPG-dependent coordination of these signaling pathways during mammalian visual system development, we have generated a series of OV-specific mutations in the heparan sulfate (HS) N-sulfotransferase genes (Ndst1 and Ndst2) and HS O-sulfotransferase genes (Hs2st, Hs6st1, and Hs6st2) in mice.
Role of heparan sulfate-2-O-sulfotransferase in the mouse.
Manchester, United Kingdom. In Biochim Biophys Acta, 2003
HS 2-O-sulfotransferase (Hs2st) occupies a critical position in the succession of enzymes responsible for the biosynthesis of HS, catalysing the transfer of sulfate to the C2-position of selected hexuronic acid residues within the nascent HS chain.
