Wnt-5a (Protein Wnt-5a, Wnt5a, Wnt-5)
Description:
Wnt-5a is a 49kD glycoprotein member of the Wnt family of developmental proteins. It is considered a class 3 Wnt based on its lack of transforming activity on C57MG cells. Genetic deletion of Wnt-5a interferes with developmental proximal-distal outgrowth of limbs and other structures. Wnt-5a can activate or inhibit b-catenin signaling depending on receptor context. Mature mouse Wnt-5a is a 342aa protein that contains 24 cysteines and four potential N-linked glycosylation sites. Mature mouse, rat and human Wnt-5a share 99% aa identity.

Applications:
Suitable for use in Immunohistochemistry, ELISA, and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.
