    • Cancer-Associated Fibroblasts Induce a Collagen Cross-link Switch in Tumor Stroma 

      Pankova, Daniela; Chen, Yulong; Terajima, Masahiko; Schliekelman, Mark J.; Baird, Brandi N.; Fahrenholtz, Monica; Sun, Li; Gill, Bartley J.; Vadakkan, Tegy J.; Kim, Min P.; Ahn, Young-Ho; Roybal, Jonathon D.; Liu, Xin; Cuentas, Edwin Roger Parra; Rodriguez, Jaime; Wistuba, Ignacio I.; Creighton, Chad J.; Gibbons, Don L.; Hicks, John M.; Dickinson, Mary E.; West, Jennifer L.; Grande-Allen, K. Jane; Hanash, Samir M.; Yamauchi, Mitsuo; Kurie, Jonathan M. (2016)
      Intratumoral collagen cross-links heighten stromal stiffness and stimulate tumor cell invasion, but it is unclear how collagen cross-linking is regulated in epithelial tumors. To address this question, we used KrasLA1 mice, ...
    • Pro-metastatic collagen lysyl hydroxylase dimer assemblies stabilized by Fe2+-binding 

      Guo, Hou-Fu; Tsai, Chi-Lin; Terajima, Masahiko; Tan, Xiaochao; Banerjee, Priyam; Miller, Mitchell D.; Liu, Xin; Yu, Jiang; Byemerwa, Jovita; Alvarado, Sarah; Kaoud, Tamer S.; Dalby, Kevin N.; Bota-Rabassedas, Neus; Chen, Yulong; Yamauchi, Mitsuo; Tainer, John A.; Phillips, George N. Jr.; Kurie, Jonathan M. (2018)
      Collagen lysyl hydroxylases (LH1-3) are Fe2+- and 2-oxoglutarate (2-OG)-dependent oxygenases that maintain extracellular matrix homeostasis. High LH2 levels cause stable collagen cross-link accumulations that promote ...
