Summaries for FZD4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for FZD4 Gene

  • This gene is a member of the frizzled gene family. Members of this family encode seven-transmembrane domain proteins that are receptors for the Wingless type MMTV integration site family of signaling proteins. Most frizzled receptors are coupled to the beta-catenin canonical signaling pathway. This protein may play a role as a positive regulator of the Wingless type MMTV integration site signaling pathway. A transcript variant retaining intronic sequence and encoding a shorter isoform has been described, however, its expression is not supported by other experimental evidence.

GeneCards Summary for FZD4 Gene

FZD4 (Frizzled Class Receptor 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with FZD4 include exudative vitreoretinopathy 1 and exudative vitreoretinopathy. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Infectious disease. GO annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and protein heterodimerization activity. An important paralog of this gene is FZD10.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for FZD4 Gene

  • Receptor for Wnt proteins. Most of frizzled receptors are coupled to the beta-catenin (CTNNB1) canonical signaling pathway, which leads to the activation of disheveled proteins, inhibition of GSK-3 kinase, nuclear accumulation of beta-catenin (CTNNB1) and activation of Wnt target genes. Plays a critical role in retinal vascularization by acting as a receptor for Wnt proteins and norrin (NDP). In retina, it can be both activated by Wnt protein-binding, but also by a Wnt-independent signaling via binding of norrin (NDP), promoting in both cases beta-catenin (CTNNB1) accumulation and stimulation of LEF/TCF-mediated transcriptional programs. 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.

FZD4_HUMAN
  • Vitreoretinopathy, exudative 1 (EVR1) [MIM:133780]: A disorder of the retinal vasculature characterized by an abrupt cessation of growth of peripheral capillaries, leading to an avascular peripheral retina. This may lead to compensatory retinal neovascularization, which is thought to be induced by hypoxia from the initial avascular insult. New vessels are prone to leakage and rupture causing exudates and bleeding, followed by scarring, retinal detachment and blindness. Clinical features can be highly variable, even within the same family. Patients with mild forms of the disease are asymptomatic, and their only disease related abnormality is an arc of avascular retina in the extreme temporal periphery. In many ways the disease resembles retinopathy of prematurity but there is no evidence of prematurity or small birth weight in the patient history. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:12172548, ECO:0000269 PubMed:14507768, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15035989, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15223780, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15370539, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15488808, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15733276, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15981244, ECO:0000269 PubMed:17093393, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19172507, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19324841, ECO:0000269 PubMed:20340138}.
