Summaries for WNT2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for WNT2 Gene

  • This gene is a member of the WNT gene family. 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. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been identified for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for WNT2 Gene

WNT2 (Wnt Family Member 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with WNT2 include autistic disorder and hyperferritinemia-cataract syndrome. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Wnt Signaling Pathway (WikiPathways). GO annotations related to this gene include receptor binding and frizzled binding. An important paralog of this gene is WNT5B.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for WNT2 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.
