25381061 These findings further elucidate the growing and complex role of HGAL in B-cell biology and suggest that membrane-bound and cytoplasmic HGAL protein differently regulates distinct biological processes.
25203428 Diagnostic Utility of the Germinal Center-associated Markers GCET1, HGAL, and LMO2 in Hematolymphoid Neoplasms.
23299888 the germinal centre protein human germinal centre-associated lymphoma regulates B-cell receptor signalling in B-lymphocytes which, without appropriate control, may lead to B-cell lymphoproliferation.
22914613 HGAL and LMO2 may be useful adjuncts in the identification of follicular lymphoma of the nongastric gastrointestinal tract.
22743653 HGAL/GCET2 protein expression may function as a marker for germinal center B-cell type diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.
21988858 Immunostaining for HGAL was more frequently positive than that for BCL6 and CD10 in follicular lymphomas
21722313 Data suggest that both HGAL and LMO2 are directly regulated by the transcription repressor PRDM1--overexpression of PRDM1 down-regulates HGAL and LMO2; PRDM1 directly binds to promoters of both HGAL and LMO2 and represses genetic transcription.
21502424 HGAL is sensitive and specific marker for detecting follicular lymphoma in nodal and extranodal sites
21475040 necessary for germinal center maintenance and confining B-cells to the germinal center microenvironment
21447067 show that HGAL increases the binding of myosin to F-actin and inhibits the ability of myosin to translocate actin by reducing the maximal velocity of myosin head/actin movement
