26582946 NKp30-B7-H6 interaction is a novel cell contact mechanism that mediates activation of Group 2 innate lymphoid cells and identifies a potential target for the development of novel therapeutics for atopic dermatitis and other atopic diseases.
26472927 study not only reveals the possibility that tumor therapeutics work as stress inducers to enhance tumor sensitivity to NK cell cytolysis but also suggests that B7-H6 could be a potential target for tumor therapy in the future
26464699 our present data revealed that higher B7-H6 expression in ovarian cancer tissues was positively correlated with tumor metastasis and cancer progression
26241657 Our results suggest that NKP30-B7-H6 interaction can aggravate hepatocyte damage, probably through up-regulation of IL-32 expression in hepatitis B virus-related acute-on-chronic liver failure
25877893 the interaction between NKp30 and B7-H6 may contribute to the fate of neuroblastoma patients
25400778 Study suggests that B7-H6 has a limited value as a prognostic marker in non-small cell lung cancer patients.
25001651 Allogeneic and xenogeneic anti-tumor effect of callithrix jacchus natural killer cells is dependent on NKp30 and B7-H6 interaction.
24780758 this study identified ectodomain shedding of B7-H6 by the metalloproteases "a disintegrin and metalloproteases" (ADAM)-10 and ADAM-17 from the cell surface of tumor cells as a crucial mechanism of expression regulation of B7-H6.
24275655 Data indicate that the ectodomain of NKp30 forms functional homo-oligomers that mediate high affinity binding to its corresponding cellular ligand B7-H6.
24242703 B7-H6-positive carcinomas were significantly associated with a higher differentiation.
23687088 These findings reveal that B7-H6 is not only implicated in tumor immunosurveillance but also participates in the inflammatory response in infectious conditions.
23066150 B7-H6:7D8 represents the first Ab-based molecule stimulating NKp30-mediated NK cell cytotoxicity for therapeutic purposes
21422170 The NKp30-B7-H6 structure revealed that this NK cell activating complex is distinct from the CTLA4-B7 and PD-1-PD-L T cell inhibitory complexes in both overall organization and detailed atomic interactions that mediate binding and specificity.
19528259 DKFZp686O24166 was designated the gene B7-H6; identification as a tumor cell surface molecule that binds NKp30, a receptor which triggers antitumor NK cell cytotoxicity and cytokine secretion
18187620 Knockdown of B7 homolog 6 (B7H6; DKFZp686O24166) by siRNA inhibits HIV-1 replication in HeLa-derived TZM-bl cells
