Summaries for SFRP2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SFRP2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the SFRP family that contains a cysteine-rich domain homologous to the putative Wnt-binding site of Frizzled proteins. SFRPs act as soluble modulators of Wnt signaling. Methylation of this gene is a potential marker for the presence of colorectal cancer. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for SFRP2 Gene

SFRP2 (Secreted Frizzled-Related Protein 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SFRP2 include synpolydactyly and colorectal cancer. Among its related pathways are Wnt signaling pathway (KEGG) and Wnt signaling pathway (KEGG). GO annotations related to this gene include integrin binding and Wnt-protein binding. An important paralog of this gene is FZD10.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SFRP2 Gene

  • Soluble frizzled-related proteins (sFRPS) function as modulators of Wnt signaling through direct interaction with Wnts. They have a role in regulating cell growth and differentiation in specific cell types. SFRP2 may be important for eye retinal development and for myogenesis
