CD98 is a cell-surface heterodimer consisting of a heavy chain (CD98hc) and a light chain. CD98hc also interacts with certain integrin b-subunits to regulate cell migration, survival, proliferation, and adhesion/polarity. CD98hc is overexpressed on the cell surface of many cancers and increased CD98hc expression is associated with the development and progression of tumors.(PMID:25084765). This protein has 4 isoforms with the molecular mass of 58-71 kDa and can be detected 85-94 kDa due to glycosylation. The glycosylated CD98hc can links to a non-glycosylated light chain (~40 kDa) via a disulfide bond to form a heterodimeric CD98 antigen with molecular mass of 120-130 kDa (PMID: 14770309).
