  • Here, we report the role of galactosyltransferase β3GalT5, a key enzyme responsible for the biosynthesis of SSEA3 which is then converted to SSEA4 and Globo-H. We demonstrated that knockdown of β3GalT5 would destruct the complex formation of SSEA3/SSEA4/Globo-H with FAK/CAV1/AKT/RIP and cause the dissociation of RIP from the complex to interact with FADD, thus triggering cancer cell apoptosis and suppressing metastasis.

  • In this paper, we describe the capacitation phenotype of sperm lacking the long isoform of β1,4-galactosyltransferase I (GalT I), a sperm surface protein that functions as a receptor for the zona pellucida glycoprotein, ZP3, and as an inducer of the acrosome reaction following ZP3-dependent aggregation.
