Summaries for WNT9A Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for WNT9A Gene

  • The WNT gene family 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. This gene is a member of the WNT gene family. It is expressed in gastric cancer cell lines. The protein encoded by this gene shows 75% amino acid identity to chicken Wnt14, which has been shown to play a central role in initiating synovial joint formation in the chick limb. This gene is clustered with another family member, WNT3A, in the chromosome 1q42 region. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for WNT9A Gene

WNT9A (Wnt Family Member 9A) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are PI3K-Akt signaling pathway and Gastric cancer. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include receptor binding and frizzled binding. An important paralog of this gene is WNT9B.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for WNT9A 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).
