Wnt family member 7B(WNT7B) Wnt family member 7B(WNT7B) Related Genes Homo sapiens
GENERIF_SUMMARY These data demonstrate that mesenchymal stem cells from mice and humans produce Wnt proteins and TGF-beta1 that respectively stimulate lung fibroblast proliferation and matrix production., Results demonstrated significant up-regulation of WNT-3, WNT-4, WNT-5B, WNT-7B, WNT-9A, WNT-10A, and WNT-16B in patients with CLL compared to normal subjects., Wnt7B was expressed at high concentrations in regions of active hyperplasia, metaplasia, and fibrotic change in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis patients., Pdgf signaling potentiates Wnt2-Wnt7b signaling to promote high levels of Wnt activity in mesenchymal progenitors that is required for proper development of endoderm-derived organs, such as the lung, Results suggest that AR-regulated WNT7B signaling is critical for the growth of CRPC and development of the osteoblastic bone response characteristic of advanced prostate cancer., WNT7B can serve as a primary determinant of differential Wnt/beta-catenin activation in pancreatic adenocarcinoma., Results illustrated the critical role of myeloid WNT7B in tumor progression, acting at the levels of angiogenesis, invasion, and metastasis., WNT7B as a novel susceptibility gene for axial length and corneal curvature and is associated with myopia and extreme myopia., Forced overexpression of Wnt7B with or without TGFB1 treatment increased Wnt5A protein expression in normal human smooth muscle cells and fibroblasts but not in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis myofibroblasts where Wnt5A was already highly expressed., the present study detected abnormal upregulation in the levels of Wnt2b and Wnt7b, and hypothesized that the alterations may be due to the ectopic opening of chromatin structure.,
SP_COMMENT function:Ligand for members of the frizzled family of seven transmembrane receptors. Probable developmental protein. May be a signaling molecule which affects the development of discrete regions of tissues. Is likely to signal over only few cell diameters., similarity:Belongs to the Wnt family., subunit:Interacts with PORCN., tissue specificity:Moderately expressed in fetal brain, weakly expressed in fetal lung and kidney, and faintly expressed in adult brain, lung and prostate.,
