Headcase homolog

This gene encodes the homolog of the Drosophila headcase protein, a highly basic, cytoplasmic protein that regulates the re-entry of imaginal cells into the mitotic cycle during adult morphogenesis. In Drosophila, the encoded protein also inhibits terminal branching of neighboring cells during tracheal development. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Burdick et al., Athens, United States. In Am J Physiol Cell Physiol, 2015
Surprisingly, CD44 was not recognized by the HECA-452 MAb, which detects sialofucosylated epitopes traditionally expressed by selectin ligands, suggesting that BT-20 cells express a novel glycoform of CD44v as an E-selectin ligand.

Identification of hypo- and hypermethylated genes related to atherosclerosis by a genome-wide analysis of DNA methylation.
Sawabe et al., Tsu, Japan. In Int J Mol Med, 2014
Three of the hypomethylated genes [Drosophila headcase (HECA), early B-cell factor 1 (EBF1) and nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain containing 2 (NOD2)] and three of the hypermethylated genes [human mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase kinase kinase 4 (MAP4K4), zinc finger E-box binding homeobox 1 (ZEB1) and FYN] were previously been implicated in atherosclerosis.
Competition between core-2 GlcNAc-transferase and ST6GalNAc-transferase regulates the synthesis of the leukocyte selectin ligand on human P-selectin glycoprotein ligand-1.
Neelamegham et al., Buffalo, United States. In J Biol Chem, 2013
In particular, ST6GalNAc2 overexpression abrogated cell surface HECA-452/CLA expression, reduced the number of rolling leukocytes on P- and L-selectin-bearing substrates by ~85%, and increased median rolling velocity of remaining cells by 80-150%.
Integrative analyses of gene expression and DNA methylation profiles in breast cancer cell line models of tamoxifen-resistance indicate a potential role of cells with stem-like properties.
Ditzel et al., In Breast Cancer Res, 2012
A panel of genes, including NRIP1, HECA and FIS1, exhibited lower gene expression in resistant vs. parental cells and concurrent increased promoter CGI methylation in resistant vs. parental cell lines.
HECA-452 is a non-function blocking antibody for isolated sialyl Lewis x adhesion to endothelial expressed E-selectin under flow conditions.
Goetz et al., Athens, United States. In J Immunol Methods, 2012
HECA-452 is a monoclonal antibody (mAb) that recognizes sLe(x) and is routinely used by investigators from diverse fields who seek to unravel the mechanisms of leukocyte adhesion.
The human HECA interacts with cyclins and CDKs to antagonize Wnt-mediated proliferation and chemoresistance of head and neck cancer cells.

Mac-2 binding protein is a novel E-selectin ligand expressed by breast cancer cells.
Burdick et al., Athens, United States. In Plos One, 2011
Consistent with their E-selectin ligand activity, ZR-75-1 cells expressed flow cytometrically detectable epitopes of HECA-452 mAb, which recognizes high efficiency E-selectin ligands typified by sialofucosylated moieties.

Nakayama et al., Matsumoto, Japan. In J Pathol, 2011
We have investigated sialyl Lewis X (sLeX)-related glycoepitopes and found that MECA-79(-) /HECA-452(+) /NCC-ST-439(+) HEV-like vessels preferentially mark gastric MALT lymphoma compared to chronic H. pylori gastritis.
Fluorinated per-acetylated GalNAc metabolically alters glycan structures on leukocyte PSGL-1 and reduces cell binding to selectins.
Neelamegham et al., Buffalo, United States. In Blood, 2010
Consistent with this hypothesis, 50muM per-acetylated 4F-GalNAc added to the growth media of promyelocytic HL-60 cells reduced the expression of the cutaneous lymphocyte associated-antigen (HECA-452 epitope) by 82% within 2 cell doubling cycles.

Reichert et al., Regensburg, Germany. In Carcinogenesis, 2009
Human HECA slows down cell division of oral squamous cell carcinoma cells and may therefore act as a tumor suppressor in head and neck cancer.

CLA is defined by both its reactivity with a unique monoclonal antibody, HECA-452, and its activity as a ligand for E-selectin, but the structure of the protein component of CLA has not previously been defined.

On the basis of evidence from the literature and pilot data on the localization of the putative vascular addressin for humans, HECA-452, in central nervous system (CNS) tissue, it is suggested that molecular recognition on CNS EC might play a pathogenetic role during immune-mediated demyelination in multiple sclerosis (MS).
