Patients with inflammatory bowel diseases are at increased risk for colorectal cancer, but the molecular mechanisms linking inflammation and cancer are not well defined. We earlier showed that carboxylated N-glycans expressed on receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE) and other glycoproteins mediate colitis through activation of nuclear factor(More)
The role of carbohydrate modifications of glycoproteins in leukocyte trafficking is well established, but less is known concerning how glycans influence pathogenesis of inflammation. We previously identified a carboxylate modification of N-linked glycans that is recognized by S100A8, S100A9, and S100A12. The glycans are expressed on macrophages and(More)
Understanding the mechanisms by which cells sense and respond to injury is central to developing therapies to enhance tissue regeneration. Previously, we showed that pancreatic injury consisting of acinar cell damage+β-cell ablation led to islet cell transdifferentiation. Here, we report that the molecular mechanism for this requires activating(More)
