In primary macrophages, HS3ST2 was clearly visualized at the plasma membrane. Its truncated form remained in the Golgi apparatus, meaning that the catalytic domain might support correct addressing of HS3ST2 to cell surface. HS3ST2 partly co-localized with syndecan-2 in HeLa cells and primary macrophages suggesting that this enzyme may participate in discrete processes that occur at the cell surface.
HS3ST2 and CCNA1 genes may play important roles in HPV-induced cervical cancer and patients with specific hypermethylated genes may have a greater risk of progressing to invasive cervical cancer.
By interacting with tau at the intracellular level, the 3-O-sulphated heparan sulphates produced by HS3ST2 might act as molecular chaperones allowing the abnormal phosphorylation of tau
HS3ST2 hypermethylation may be an independent prognostic indicator for overall survival in node-negative stage I-II NSCLC
These results showed that silencing of 3-OST-2 was present in a wide range of human cancersFrom the high incidence, silencing of the 3-OST-2 gene is expected to have high diagnostic, and potentially therapeutic, values.
results raise the possibility of a role of 3-OST-2 in the spread of HSV-1 infection in the brain
3-OST-2 and 3-OST-4 are the major neural gD-type 3-OSTs, and so are prime candidates for participating in HS-dependent neurobiologic events.
The 3OST-2 and -4 are specifically expressed in brain.
Heparan sulfate biosynthetic enzymes are key components in generating a myriad of distinct heparan sulfate fine structures that carry out multiple biologic activities. The enzyme encoded by this gene is a member of the heparan sulfate biosynthetic enzyme family. It is a type II integral membrane protein and possesses heparan sulfate glucosaminyl 3-O-sulfotransferase activity. This gene is expressed predominantly in brain and may play a role in the nervous system.
