Technical Data
Wnt1 (Proto-oncogene Wnt-1, Proto-oncogene Int-1 Homolog, INT1)
Wnt1, a 370aa protein belonging to the Wnt family, is a signaling molecule important in CNS development. It plays a role in oncogenesis and in several developmental processes, including regulation of cell fate and patterning during embryogenesis. Wnt1 signaling is involved in many functions including the inhibition of apoptosis in several cancers, inhibition of interfollicular progenitor cell growth and it promotes terminal differentiation of keratinocytes and plays a role in angiogenesis by endothelial cell growth control that is mediated through cell-cell contact. Wnt1 blockade by either monoclonal antibody or siRNA induces cell death in sarcoma cells. It is expressed in hair follicles, sebaceous glands, skin and other tissues.
