Fabrice Allain Heparan sulfate 3-O-sulfotransferases (HS3STs) catalyze the maturation step of heparan sulfate (HS) 3-O-sulfation. This modification is relatively rare. Moreover, only a few biological processes have been described to be influenced by 3-O-sulfated HS, and few ligands have been identified so far. Among them, neuropilin-1 (Nrp1) was reported to exhibit tumor-promoting properties by enhancing the action of various growth factors. We recently demonstrated that transient overexpression of HS3ST2, 3B or 4 enhanced the proliferation of breast cancer MDA-MB-231 cells and promote efficient protection against pro-...

Authors: Sang MM, Liu FL, Wang Y, Luo RJ, Huan XX, Han LF, Zhang ZT, Feng F, Qu W, Liu W, Zheng F Abstract Gambogic acid (GA) is a naturally derived potent anticancer agent with extremely poor biocompatibility. In the present study, a novel of redox/pH dual-responsive multifunctional magnetic complex micelle (sPEG/HA/CSO-SS-Hex/Fe3O4/GA), which consisted of a reducible hexadecanol-modified chitosan oligosaccharide polymer micelle (CSO-SS-Hex) coated with hyaluronic acid (HA) and DCA grafted sheddable PEG-PLL (sPEG) copolymers and loaded with gambogic acid (GA) and Fe3O4 nanoparticles were developed for parenteral d...
