Frizzled family receptor 8

FZD8, Frizzled 8, Fz8
This intronless gene is a member of the frizzled gene family. Members of this family encode seven-transmembrane domain proteins that are receptors for the Wingless type MMTV integration site family of signaling proteins. Most frizzled receptors are coupled to the beta-catenin canonical signaling pathway. This gene is highly expressed in two human cancer cell lines, indicating that it may play a role in several types of cancer. The crystal structure of the extracellular cysteine-rich domain of a similar mouse protein has been determined. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Pollard et al., Buenos Aires, Argentina. In Bioessays, Oct 2015

miR-375 regulates the canonical Wnt pathway through FZD8 silencing in arthritis synovial fibroblasts.
Li et al., China. In Immunol Lett, Mar 2015
Because the web-based software TargetScan and PicTar predict Frizzled 8 (FZD8) as the target of miR-375, we investigated whether up-regulated miR-375 plays a role in the activation of the canonical Wnt signaling by targeting the FZD8.
Targeting the c-Met/FZD8 signaling axis eliminates patient-derived cancer stem-like cells in head and neck squamous carcinomas.
Zhang et al., Shanghai, China. In Cancer Res, 2015
Mechanistic investigations showed that CSC elimination was due to downregulation of Wnt/β-catenin signaling in HN-CSC and that the Wnt pathway receptor FZD8 was essential for interactions of c-Met and Wnt/β-catenin signaling in HN-CSC.

Wang et al., Shenzhen, China. In Glia, 2014
We further found that ATP up-regulated the Tuj1, Pax6, FZD8 and β-catenin mRNA levels of MSCs, which could be reversed by application of TNP-ATP.
Early aberrant DNA methylation events in a mouse model of acute myeloid leukemia.
Plass et al., Heidelberg, Germany. In Genome Med, 2013
Nine novel hypermethylated genes, FZD5, FZD8, PRDM16, ROBO3, CXCL14, BCOR, ITPKA, HES6 and TAL1, the latter four being potential PU.1 targets, were confirmed to be hypermethylated in human normal karyotype AML patients, underscoring the relevance of the mouse model for human AML.

Lipid modification in Wnt structure and function.
Williams et al., Grand Rapids, United States. In Curr Opin Lipidol, 2013
SUMMARY: The recent determination of the Wnt8-Fz8 structure has created new opportunities to better understand the mechanisms by which Wnt proteins activate downstream signaling pathways and has further clarified why lipid modification of Wnt is required for activation.
