Summaries for WNT5B Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for WNT5B 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 encodes a protein which shows 94% and 80% amino acid identity to the mouse Wnt5b protein and the human WNT5A protein, respectively. Alternative splicing of this gene generates 2 transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for WNT5B Gene

WNT5B (Wingless-Type MMTV Integration Site Family, Member 5B) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Proteoglycans in cancer. GO annotations related to this gene include receptor binding and frizzled binding. An important paralog of this gene is WNT1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for WNT5B Gene

  • Ligand for members of the frizzled family of seven transmembrane receptors. Probable developmental protein. May be a signaling molecule which affects the development of discrete regions of tissues. Is likely to signal over only few cell diameters (By similarity).
