26222208 Overexpression of HAS3 decreased ERK1/2 phosphorylation suggesting that inhibition of MAP-kinase signaling was responsible for decreased melanoma cell adhesion, migration and proliferation.
25934334 HAS3 underexpression is associated with advanced tumor stage and adverse pathological features, as well as implies inferior clinical outcomes for both groups of patients with UTUCs and UBUCs, suggesting its critical role in tumor progression
25843802 Transcriptional factor binding analysis indicated that HAS3 gene promoter lacks of canonical TATA box, but contains classical GC box as well as other putative binding sites for transcriptional factors
25147816 Hyaluronan accumulation by HAS3 favors pancreatic cancer growth.
24658508 HAS3 mRNA expression level increases in atopic dermatitis lesions compared with healthy and non-lesional skin
24509846 Rab10 silencing increased the plasma membrane residence of HAS3, resulting in a significant increase of hyaluronan secretion and an enlarged cell surface HA coat, whereas Rab10 overexpression suppressed hyaluronan synthesis.
24470002 Hyaluronan (HA) produced by HAS3 is a ubiquitous component of the extracellular matrix and plays an active role in tissue remodeling. In addition, HA is known to reduce reactive oxygen species (ROS) -induced cardiac injury.
23979132 Data indicate that oxLDL doubled the transcripts of hyaluronan synthases HAS2 and HAS3 and hyaluronan deposition via the scavenger receptor LOX-1.
23560496 Inverse expression of hyaluronidase 2 and hyaluronan synthases 1-3 is associated with reduced hyaluronan content in malignant cutaneous melanoma.
23303191 Hyaluronan synthase 1 (HAS1) requires higher cellular UDP-GlcNAc concentration than HAS2 and HAS3
22695958 HA chains synthesized by HAS1 and HAS2 contribute to outflow resistance, while hyaluronan produced by HAS3 does not appear to play a significant role.
21429221 Data show that mRNA of HAS isoform 3 (HAS3) was upregulated in ESCC biopsies.
20875124 Hyaluronan synthases (HAS1-3) and hyaluronidases (HYAL1-2) in the accumulation of hyaluronan in endometrioid endometrial carcinoma
20849445 Nodular basal cell carcinoma is associated with increased levels of hyaluronic acid concomitant with upregulation of gene expression of HAS3, HYAL3 and RHAMM, when compared with normal adjacent skin.
20628086 Observational study of gene-disease association, gene-environment interaction, and pharmacogenomic / toxicogenomic. (HuGE Navigator)
19913121 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19435493 HAS1, HAS2 and HAS3 expression is not consistently elevated in ovarian carcinomas.
19231585 Hyaluronan synthase (HAS2 and HAS3) and hyaluronan may mediate cellular invasion via changes in MMP-7 expression in SW620 colon carcinoma cells.
18587729 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
16786194 The aim of this study was to evaluate how TNF-alpha, IFN-gamma,IL-1beta, and exposition to oxidative stress may modulate HAS activities in normal human skin fibroblasts.
16564133 mRNA for HAS1 is undetectable but HAS3 mRNA can be readily detected in freshly isolated CD133+ as well as in CD133- umbilical cord blood (UCB) cells. mRNA for HAS2 can only be detected in CD133+ progenitor cells.
14636845 Expression of each hyaluronan synthase isoform is regulated differently by growth factors and cytokines in vascular endothelial cells. Expressed in proliferative membranes from proliferative vitreoretinal diseases. May affect progression of diseases.
