Summaries for WNT7B Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for WNT7B Gene

  • This gene is a member of the WNT gene family, which consists of structurally related genes that 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. Among members of the human WNT family, this gene product is most similar to WNT7A protein. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2008]

GeneCards Summary for WNT7B Gene

WNT7B (Wingless-Type MMTV Integration Site Family, Member 7B) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Proteoglycans in cancer. GO annotations related to this gene include extracellular matrix structural constituent and frizzled binding. An important paralog of this gene is WNT1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for WNT7B 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).
