GENERIF_SUMMARY molecular model of the Wnt protein binding site on the surface of dimeric CRD domain of the Fzd8 receptor, analysis of the frizzled8.Wnt3a.LRP6 signaling complex reveals multiple Wnt and Dkk1 binding sites on LRP6, These observations suggest that c-Jun is involved in APF-mediated inhibition for bladder tumor cell growth, Soluble FZC18 and Wnt3a physically interact in a cell-free system and soluble FZC18 binds the frizzled 1 and 8 receptors., APF has been shown to be a nine-residue frizzled-8 protein-related sialoglycopeptide. Subsequent research has gradually clarified the molecular mechanisms underlying the profound antiproliferative effect of APF., We demonstrated an activation of Wnt-2 signaling via the Frizzled-8 receptor in non-small cell lung cancer cells, c-Met upregulated FZD8 through the ERK/c-Fos cascade in HN-CSC. Taken together, our results offer a preclinical proof-of-concept for targeting the c-Met/FZD8 signaling axis as a CSC-directed therapy to improve HNSCC treatment, report the discovery of a human-accelerated regulatory enhancer (HARE5) of FZD8, a receptor of the Wnt pathway implicated in brain development and size, Study concludes that expression of Fzd8 is repressed in multiple cancers and suggest it may have a role as a tumor suppressor., Frizzled-8 has an important pro-inflammatory role and suggest that its expression is related to chronic bronchitis.,
OFFICIAL_GENE_SYMBOL FZD8,
SP_COMMENT domain:Lys-Thr-X-X-X-Trp motif is involved in the activation of the Wnt/beta-catenin signaling pathway., domain:The FZ domain is involved in binding with Wnt ligands., domain:The PDZ-binding motif mediates interaction with GOPC., function:Receptor for Wnt proteins. Most of frizzled receptors are coupled to the beta-catenin canonical signaling pathway, which leads to the activation of disheveled proteins, inhibition of GSK-3 kinase, nuclear accumulation of beta-catenin and activation of Wnt target genes. A second signaling pathway involving PKC and calcium fluxes has been seen for some family members, but it is not yet clear if it represents a distinct pathway or if it can be integrated in the canonical pathway, as PKC seems to be required for Wnt-mediated inactivation of GSK-3 kinase. Both pathways seem to involve interactions with G-proteins. May be involved in transduction and intercellular transmission of polarity information during tissue morphogenesis and/or in differentiated tissues., similarity:Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor Fz/Smo family., similarity:Contains 1 FZ (frizzled) domain., subunit:Interacts with GOPC. Interacts with RSPO1 and RSPO3., tissue specificity:Most abundant in fetal kidney, followed by brain and lung. In adult tissues, expressed in kidney, heart, pancreas and skeletal muscle.,
