Summaries for WLS Gene

GeneCards Summary for WLS Gene

WLS (Wnt Ligand Secretion Mediator) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with WLS include Focal Dermal Hypoplasia and Acute Hemorrhagic Conjunctivitis. Among its related pathways are Signaling by Wnt and Signaling by GPCR. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include obsolete signal transducer activity and mu-type opioid receptor binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for WLS Gene

  • Regulates Wnt proteins sorting and secretion in a feedback regulatory mechanism. This reciprocal interaction plays a key role in the regulation of expression, subcellular location, binding and organelle-specific association of Wnt proteins. Plays also an important role in establishment of the anterior-posterior body axis formation during development (By similarity).
