Entrez Gene Summary for KREMEN1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a high-affinity dickkopf homolog 1 (DKK1) transmembrane receptor that functionally cooperates with DKK1 to block wingless (WNT)/beta-catenin signaling. The encoded protein is a component of a membrane complex that modulates canonical WNT signaling through lipoprotein receptor-related protein 6 (LRP6). It contains extracellular kringle, WSC, and CUB domains. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for KREMEN1 Gene

KREMEN1 (Kringle Containing Transmembrane Protein 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KREMEN1 include sost-related sclerosing bone dysplasia and osteoporosis-pseudoglioma syndrome. Among its related pathways are Wnt signaling network and WNT Signaling. An important paralog of this gene is KREMEN2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KREMEN1 Gene

  • Receptor for Dickkopf protein. Cooperates with Dickkopf to block Wnt/beta-catenin signaling (By similarity).
