26914861 results suggest that Akt and JNK pathways are involved in the regulation of B-cell maturation antigen (BCMA)
26065893 shedding of BCMA by gamma-secretase controls plasma cells in the bone marrow and yields a potential biomarker for B-cell involvement in human autoimmune diseases
25759827 elevated serum levels in patients with Behcet's disease
25750171 High BCMA expression is associated with breast cancer.
25301447 Data show significant differences in expression of tumour necrosis factor family (BAFF) receptors BAFF-R, BCMA and TACI in patients with and without anti-Jo-1 or anti-Ro52/anti-Ro60 autoantibodies.
24376672 BAFF and APRIL as well as their cognate receptors (BCMA, TACI) correlate with glioma grade. (Meta-analysis)
23776238 B-cell maturation antigen (BCMA), an essential membrane protein for maintaining the survival of plasma cells, was identified as a glycoprotein exhibiting complex-type N-glycans at a single N-glycosylation site, asparagine 42.
23728352 Data indicate that MAGE3, Survivin and B-cell maturation antigen (BCMA) mRNA-pulsed dendritic cells (DCs) are capable of stimulating tumor-associated antigens (TAA)-specific T-cell responses in multiple myeloma (MM) patients.
23344265 Data indicate that B-cell maturation antigen (BCMA) is a suitable target for chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-expressing T cells, and adoptive transfer of anti-BCMA-CAR-expressing T cells is a promising new strategy for treating multiple myeloma.
23237506 The B cell maturation antigen (BCMA) is a tumor necrosis family receptor member that is predominantly expressed on terminally differentiated B cells and, upon binding to its ligands B cell activator of the TNF family and a proliferation inducing ligand.
