Lens regeneration from the cornea requires suppression of Wnt/β-catenin signaling.
Urbana, United States. In Exp Eye Res, Feb 2016
Numerous frizzled receptors (fzd1, fzd2, fzd3, fzd4, fzd6, fzd7, fzd8, and fzd10) and wnt ligands (wnt2b.a,
High mobility group box 1-induced epithelial mesenchymal transition in human airway epithelial cells.
Taiwan. In Sci Rep, Dec 2015
The top five upregulated genes were SNAI2, FGFBP1, VIM, SPARC (osteonectin), and SERPINE1, while the downregulated genes included OCLN, TJP1 (ZO-1), FZD7, CDH1 (E-cadherin), and LAMA5.
Overexpression and knockout of miR-126 both promote leukemogenesis.
Chicago, United States. In Blood, Nov 2015
Mechanistically, miR-126 overexpression activates genes that are highly expressed in LSCs/LICs and/or primitive hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells, likely through targeting ERRFI1 and SPRED1, whereas miR-126 knockout activates genes that are highly expressed in committed, more differentiated hematopoietic progenitor cells, presumably through inducing FZD7 expression.
Rhesus monkey model of liver disease reflecting clinical disease progression and hepatic gene expression analysis.
Kunming, China. In Sci Rep, 2014
The up-regulation of expression of hepatic genes related to liver steatosis (CPT1A, FASN, LEPR, RXRA, IGFBP1, PPARGC1A and SLC2A4) was detected in our rhesus model, as was the down-regulation of such genes (CYP7A1, HMGCR, GCK and PNPLA3) and the up-regulation of expression of hepatic genes related to liver cancer (E2F1, OPCML, FZD7, IGFBP1 and LEF1).
Frizzled7 as an emerging target for cancer therapy.
Birmingham, United States. In Cell Signal, 2012
Recent studies indicated that, among the Fzd family, Fzd7 is the Wnt receptor most commonly upregulated in a variety of cancers including colorectal cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma and triple negative breast cancer.
WNT signaling in stem cell biology and regenerative medicine.
Tokyo, Japan. In Curr Drug Targets, 2008
FZD1, FZD2, FZD3, FZD4, FZD5, FZD6, FZD7, FZD8, FZD9, FZD10, LRP5, LRP6, and ROR2 are transmembrane receptors transducing WNT signals based on ligand-dependent preferentiality for caveolin- or clathrin-mediated endocytosis.
