To overcome the limitations of animal-based experiments, 3D culture models mimicking the tumor microenvironment in vivo are gaining attention. Herein, we investigated an alginate-based 3D scaffold for screening of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) or/and curcumin on malignancy of colorectal cancer cells (CRC)....

An important role in cancer pathogenesis is attributed to N-glycans with "bisecting" N-acetylglucosamine and beta1-6 branches but the exact mechanisms still remain to be elucidated. Two structures are formed by Golgi beta-1,4-mannosyl-glycoprotein 4-beta-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase (EC =, GnT-III) and alpha-1,6-mannosylglycoprotein 6-beta-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase...
