25269761 In conclusion, the alteration of b3GnT8 in colorectal cancer cells correlates with tumor sensitivity to the chemotherapeutic drug and has significant implication for the development of new treatment strategies.
24970053 Study shows that beta3GnT8 is involved in the regulation of CD147 N-glycosylation and further influences MMP-2 expression in tumor cells suggesting that it may play an important role in the CD147 signaling as an upstream modulator of MMP-2 in tumor cells.
24715095 The results demonstrated a critical role of beta3GnT8 in the metastatic potential of glioma cells, indicating that manipulating beta3GnT8 expression may have therapeutic potential for the treatment of malignant glioma.
24573103 we suggest that beta3GnT8 plays a key role in the metastasis of colorectal cancer cells by altering the beta1,6-branched polylactosamine sugars of CD147.
22901175 High beta3Gn-T8 expression is associated with laryngeal carcinoma.
21468598 The down-regulation of beta3Gn-T8 caused significant inhibition of tumor cell growth in vitro.
20963502 These results reveal a new mechanism by which beta3Gn-T8 can regulate MMP-2 and TIMP-2.
18826941 up-regulation of beta3Gn-T8 in differentiated cells increases poly-N-acetyllactosamine chains by activating intrinsic beta3Gn-T2.
15620693 The cloning of a novel beta1,3-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase that is upregulated in a human colon cancer cell line.
15486459 highly expressed in lung, throat and ileum, whereas the expression level was low in tongue, breast, uteri, testis. In addition, it was also demonstrated that B3GALT7 is differentially transcribed in human tumor cell lines.
