Sammanfattning : Hyaluronan, a prevalent glycosaminoglycan of the extracellular space often accumulates in pathological conditions, such as chronic inflammation, infection, and cancer. Hyaluronan synthase HAS2 has been responsible for the synthesis and deposition of hyaluronan in a variety of tumors. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Atherosclerosis is an inflammatory disease that can lead to clinical complications such as myocardial infarction and stroke. Expressed in both vascular and inflammatory cells, adhesion molecule CD44 can be cleaved from the cell surface, and soluble CD44 can be detected in blood. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Hyaluronan is a ubiquitous glycosaminoglycan which is an important constituent of the extracellular matrix (ECM). In addition to organizing the extracellular matrix and regulating tissue homeostasis, hyaluronan, by binding to its main cell surface receptor CD44, is involved in intracellular signaling pathways regulating major cellular processes during development, wound healing, inflammation and cancer. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Hyaluronan (HA), a structural component in the extracellular matrix (ECM), has been recognized as a signaling molecule. It is important during various biological activities such as embryogenesis, angiogenesis, wound healing and tumor progression. LÄS MER
5. Hyaluronan and the receptor CD 44 in the heart and vessels : a study in normal and pathological conditions
Sammanfattning : Tissues are not solely composed of cells. The extracellular matrix is important for the cell well-being and cell-cell communication. The glycosaminoglycan hyaluronan (HYA) is a widely distributed extracellular matrix (ECM) component. LÄS MER
