UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for NOTUM Gene
Carboxylesterase that acts as a key negative regulator of the Wnt signaling pathway by specifically mediating depalmitoleoylation of WNT proteins. Serine palmitoleoylation of WNT proteins is required for efficient binding to frizzled receptors (PubMed:25731175).
