26172302 BRAF(V600E) mutation induces MGL ligand expression, thereby providing a direct link between oncogenic transformation and aberrant expression of immunosuppressive glycans in colorectal neoplasms.
26147970 These results indicate a role of MGL as an immunomodulator within the tumour microenvironment interfering with Treg functions, suggesting its possible use in the design of anticancer vaccines.
23918927 expression of GalNAc moieties mirrors the T cell activation status, and thus only highly stimulated T cells are prone to the suppressive action of MGL.
23744646 MGL triggering synergized with TLR2-induced pathways, leading to elevated IL-10 mRNA levels & enhanced TNF-alpha mRNA stability. It promoted phosphorylation of the ERK & CREB, fine-tuning the DC maturation phenotype.
23383108 A synthetic peptide corresponding to the immunosuppressive domain (amino acids 574-592) of HIV-1 gp41 downregulates the expression of C-type lectin domain family 10, member A (CLEC10A) in peptide-treated PBMCs
23275449 Described is the use of recombinant CLEC10A (CD301), a human glycoreceptor of the C-type lectin family, for the detection of ligands in sections from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded normal and cancerous mammary tissues.
22531918 MGL engagement improved DC performance as antigen-presenting cells, promoting the upregulation of maturation markers, a decrease in phagocytosis, an enhancement of motility, and most importantly an increase in antigen-specific CD8(+) T-cell activation.
