Dickkopf homolog 4

DKK4, DICKKOPF-4, dickkopf homolog 4
This gene encodes a protein that is a member of the dickkopf family. The secreted protein contains two cysteine rich regions and is involved in embryonic development through its interactions with the Wnt signaling pathway. Activity of this protein is modulated by binding to the Wnt co-receptor and the co-factor kremen 2. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

β-catenin regulates NF-κB activity via TNFRSF19 in colorectal cancer cells.
Herbst et al., München, Germany. In Int J Cancer, 2014
Apart from known β-catenin target genes like MYC, OPG, and DKK4, the gene TNFRSF19, a member of the TNF receptor superfamily, is regulated by β-catenin in mesenchymal stem cells (hMSC).
Proteomic analysis of solid pseudopapillary tumor of the pancreas reveals dysfunction of the endoplasmic reticulum protein processing pathway.
Peng et al., Shanghai, China. In Mol Cell Proteomics, 2014
Mass spectrometry results were then further confirmed by assessing six representative proteins (ACADL, EPHX2, MSI2, DKK4, JUP, and DAD1) in individual specimens with immunohistochemistry. Upon mapping of the differentially expressed proteins to the Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes pathways database, we found several new cell-adhesion molecules that could be used as pathologic biomarkers.
