Extensive accumulation of the glycosaminoglycan hyaluronan is found in pancreatic cancer. The role of hyaluronan synthases 2 and 3 (HAS2, 3) was investigated in pancreatic cancer growth and the tumor microenvironment. Overexpression of HAS3 increased hyaluronan synthesis in BxPC-3 pancreatic cancer cells. In vivo, overexpression of HAS3 led to faster(More)
 The winged bean (Psophocarpus tetragonolobus) agglutinin (total lectin) and its basic (WBA I) and acidic isoform (WBA II) were used to analyze capillaries in sections from human muscle. The microvessels were clearly labeled after incubation with the lectins in both normal muscle and in old muscles with age-related type II atrophy or muscle fiber grouping.(More)
Despite tremendous progress in cancer immunotherapy for solid tumors, clinical success of monoclonal antibody (mAb) therapy is often limited by poorly understood mechanisms associated with the tumor microenvironment (TME). Accumulation of hyaluronan (HA), a major component of the TME, occurs in many solid tumor types, and is associated with poor prognosis(More)
