Galectin-8 activates dendritic cells and stimulates antigen-specific immune response elicitation.
these data suggest that Gal-8 promotes the differentiation of highly suppressive Treg cells, which has implications for the treatment of inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.
this study uncovers a unique molecular mechanism of lymphangiogenesis in which galectin-8-dependent crosstalk among VEGF-C (show VEGFC Antibodies), podoplanin (show PDPN Antibodies) and integrin pathways plays a key role.
Gal (show GAL Antibodies)-8mut was unable to induce T-cell proliferation, but efficiently co-stimulated antigen-specific responses, bothin vitroandin vivo.
Gal-8 emerges as an attractive therapeutic candidate.
Galectin-8 induces RANKL (show TNFSF11 Antibodies) expression, osteoclastogenesis, and bone mass reduction in mice.
Gal-8 stimulated naive T cells, but had an antiproliferative effect when these cells were activated.A dose of recombinant Gal-8 administered with a suboptimal Ag dose to DO11.10 mice strengthened weak responses in vivo.
a novel role for Gal-8 in collaboration with Gal-1 (show LGALS1 Antibodies) in plasma cell formation, and suggest the possibility of using distinct LacNAc ligands to modulate the function of Gals.
The findings of the present study delineate the differential molecular requirements for Gal-8 activities on T-cells, and suggest a dual activity relying on activation state.
downstream effectors of PI3K, including PKB (show AKT2 Antibodies) and p70 S6 kinase (show PRKACB Antibodies), in part mediate cell adhesion, spreading, and microspike formation induced by galectin-8
the natural and conserved expression of Gal-8 in tumour cells is responsible for the metastatic evolution of prostate cancer.
Both Gal-8 isoforms led to enhanced adhesion of myeloma cells to vascular endothelium under dynamic shear stress conditions, Gal (show GAL Antibodies)-8L (by more than 40-fold) even stronger than Gal (show GAL Antibodies)-8S.
Our data indicate that Gal-8 interacts with ALCAM at the surface of breast cancer cells through glycosylation-dependent mechanisms. A novel heterophilic interaction between ALCAM and Gal-8 is demonstrated here, suggesting its physiologic relevance in the biology of breast cancer cells
we detected Gal-8 in human cerebrospinal fluid, suggesting a role in the CNS immune-surveillance circuit. In addition, we show that MS patients generate function-blocking anti-Gal-8 antibodies with pathogenic potential. Furthermore, circulating anti-Gal-8 antibodies associate with relapsing-remitting MS, and not with progressive MS phenotypes, predicting clinical disability at diagnosis within the first year of follow-up
Data suggest that galectin-8 is a potential independent favorable prognostic biomarker for survival and recurrence of patients with gastric cancer after surgery.
Platelet-derived factor V/Va is generated following endocytosis of the plasma-derived molecule by the platelet precursor cells, megakaryocytes, via a two receptor system consisting of LRP-1 (show LRP1 Antibodies) and an unidentified specific "binding site".
Gal-8 expression is a potential independent unfavorable prognostic indicator for postoperative recurrence of patients with localized pT1 (show ZNF77 Antibodies) clear cell renal cell carcinoma (show MOK Antibodies)
The fundamental roles of galectin-8 in human anaplastic large cell lymphoma
The implications of gal-8 in tumor angiogenesis remain to be further explored, but it is exciting to speculate that modulating gal-8-glycan interactions could be used to block lymphatic-vascular connections vital for metastasis
This gene encodes a member of the galectin family. Galectins are beta-galactoside-binding animal lectins with conserved carbohydrate recognition domains. The galectins have been implicated in many essential functions including development, differentiation, cell-cell adhesion, cell-matrix interaction, growth regulation, apoptosis, and RNA splicing. This gene is widely expressed in tumoral tissues and seems to be involved in integrin-like cell interactions. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified.
