G protein-coupled receptor homologous desensitization is intrinsically related to the function of a class of S/T kinases named G protein-coupled receptor kinases (GRK). The GRK family is composed of six cloned members, named GRK1 to 6. Studies from different laboratories have demonstrated that different calcium sensor proteins (CSP) can selectively regulate(More)
Sulfated polysaccharides from Laminaria saccharina (new name: Saccharina latissima) brown seaweed show promising activity for the treatment of inflammation, thrombosis, and cancer; yet the molecular mechanisms underlying these properties remain poorly understood. The aim of this work was to characterize, using in vitro and in vivo strategies, the(More)
Galectins, a family of structurally related carbohydrate-binding proteins, contribute to different events associated with cancer biology, including apoptosis, homotypic cell aggregation, angiogenesis and tumor-immune escape. To interfere with galectin-carbohydrate interactions during tumor progression, a current challenge is the design of specific galectin(More)
Elevated serum or tissue levels of lectin galactoside-binding soluble 3 binding protein (LGALS3BP) have been associated with short survival and development of metastasis in a variety of human cancers. However, the role of LGALS3BP, particularly in the context of tumor–host relationships, is still missing. Here, we show that LGALS3BP knockdown in MDA-MB-231(More)
