26876179 MCT1 inhibition impairs proliferation of glycolytic breast cancer cells co-expressing MCT1 and MCT4 via disruption of pyruvate rather than lactate export.
26779534 MCT1 expression was not clearly associated with overall or disease-free survival. MCT4 and CD147 expression correlate with worse prognosis across many cancer types. These results warrant further investigation of these associations
26384346 Prognostic significance of CD147 protein expression could not surpass that of MCT4, especially of SLC16A3 DNA methylation, corroborating the role of MCT4 as prognostic biomarker for ccRCC.
26363456 Knockdown of MCT4 blocks lactate efflux to result in lactic acid accumulation and pH dropping, which is involved in triggering apoptosis in HUVECs.
26213210 synovial fibroblasts from patients with rheumatoid arthritis exhibited up-regulated transcription of MCT4 mRNA compared with osteoarthritis patients. Knockdown of MCT4 induced intrinsic apoptosis of fibroblasts, thereby inhibiting their proliferation.
26059436 we showed that genetic disruption of Mct4 and/or Ampk dramatically reduced tumourigenicity in a xenograft mouse model suggesting a crucial role for these two actors in establishment of tumours in a nutrient-deprived environment
25965974 MCT4 expression is regulated by the PI3K-Akt signalling pathway and highly expressed in HER2-positive breast cancers where it regulates tumor cell metabolism and survival.
25957999 The first IF method has been developed and optimised for detection of MCT 1 and MCT4 in cancer patient circulating tumour cells .
25919709 Findings demonstrate that the histidine residue His382 in the extracellular loop of the transporter is essential for pH regulation of MCT4-mediated substrate transport activity.
25578492 we sought to evaluate the associations of nine functional SNPs in genes encoding MCT1, MCT2, and MCT4 with the prognosis in a cohort of 500 Chinese NSCLC patients.
