Summaries for WNT10A Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for WNT10A Gene

  • The WNT gene family consists of structurally related genes which encode secreted signaling proteins. These proteins have been implicated in oncogenesis and in several developmental processes, including regulation of cell fate and patterning during embryogenesis. This gene is a member of the WNT gene family. It is strongly expressed in the cell lines of promyelocytic leukemia and Burkitt's lymphoma. In addition, it and another family member, the WNT6 gene, are strongly coexpressed in colorectal cancer cell lines. The gene overexpression may play key roles in carcinogenesis through activation of the WNT-beta-catenin-TCF signaling pathway. This gene and the WNT6 gene are clustered in the chromosome 2q35 region.

Disorders for WNT10A Gene

(3) OMIM Diseases for WNT10A Gene (606268)


  • Note=Defects in WNT10A may be a cause of hypohidrotic/anhidrotic ectodermal dysplasia, a disorder characterized by sparse hair (atrichosis or hypotrichosis), abnormal or missing teeth and the inability to sweat due to the absence of sweat glands. Most patients carrying WNT10A mutations present with sweating anomalies. However, comparison with cases harboring mutations in the ectodysplasin pathway identifies some phenotypic differences. Dermatological features (anomalies of hair and sweat glands) are less severe in patients carrying WNT10A mutations and facial dysmorphism can be absent. The dental phenotype consists in microdontia, whereas teeth agenesis is more frequent in patients carrying mutations in the ectodysplasin pathway.
  • Odonto-onycho-dermal dysplasia (OODD) [MIM:257980]: A rare autosomal recessive ectodermal dysplasia characterized by dry hair, severe hypodontia, smooth tongue with marked reduction of fungiform and filiform papillae, onychodysplasia, keratoderma and hyperhidrosis of palms and soles, and hyperkeratosis of the skin. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:17847007, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19559398}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Schopf-Schulz-Passarge syndrome (SSPS) [MIM:224750]: A rare ectodermal dysplasia, characterized chiefly by cysts of the eyelid margins, palmoplantar keratoderma, hypodontia, hypotrichosis and nail dystrophy. Multiple eyelid apocrine hidrocystomas are the hallmark of this condition, although they usually appear in adulthood. The concomitant presence of eccrine syringofibroadenoma in most patients and of other adnexal skin tumors in some affected subjects indicates that Schopf-Schulz-Passarge syndrome is a genodermatosis with skin appendage neoplasms. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:19559398}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Tooth agenesis selective 4 (STHAG4) [MIM:150400]: A form of selective tooth agenesis, a common anomaly characterized by the congenital absence of one or more teeth. Selective tooth agenesis without associated systemic disorders has sometimes been divided into 2 types: oligodontia, defined as agenesis of 6 or more permanent teeth, and hypodontia, defined as agenesis of less than 6 teeth. The number in both cases does not include absence of third molars (wisdom teeth). In STHAG4, the upper lateral incisors are absent or peg-shaped. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:21484994, ECO:0000269 PubMed:22581971}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
