27143355 The current study describes a novel mechanism linking the TSG-6 transfer of the newly described HC5 to the HA-dependent control of cell phenotype. The interaction of HC5 with cell surface HA was essential for TGFbeta1-dependent differentiation of fibroblasts to myofibroblasts, highlighting its importance as a novel potential therapeutic target.
26685054 Data postulate that the molecular cross-linking enhanced by the multiple binding modes of the Link module might be critical for remodeling the ECM during inflammation/ovulation and might contribute to other functions of TSG-6.
26468290 the well characterized hyaluronan-binding site in the TSG-6 Link module is not used for recognition during transfer of HCs onto HA.
25661977 TSG-6 exhibited anti-inflammatory effects during the wound healing process and cicatrization and significantly diminished hypertrophic scar formation in a rabbit ear model
25561734 Heavy chain transfer by tumor necrosis factor-stimulated gene 6 to the bikunin proteoglycan.
25329668 results suggest that systemic administration of hASC or TSG-6 may be novel approaches to reverse CS-induced myelosuppression.
25325979 TSG-6 activity in tissues, was examined.
24742347 HIV-1 gp120 upregulates the expression of tumor necrosis factor, alpha-induced protein 6 (TNFAIP6) in human B cells
24667918 HIV-1 gp120 upregulates the expression of tumor necrosis factor, alpha-induced protein 6 (TNFAIP6) in human B cells
24501198 TSG-6 suppresses CXCL8-mediated chemotaxis of neutrophils; this lower potency effect might be important at sites where there is high local expression of TSG-6.
