Single nucleotide polymorphisms in Wnt signaling and cell death pathway genes and susceptibility to colorectal cancer.
Heidelberg, Germany. In Carcinogenesis, 2010
This population-based case-control study, including 1795 CRC cases and 1805 controls, investigates the association between common, putative functional polymorphisms in DNFA5, HIF1A, NDRG1, PYGO1, SFRP2, SFRP4, WISP1 and WISP3 genes and CRC risk.
Comparative genomics on FGF16 orthologs.
Japan. In Int J Mol Med, 2005
Because nuclear complex consisting of TCF/LEF (TCF1, TCF3, TCF4 or LEF1), beta-catenin, PYGO (PYGO1 or PYGO2) and Legless (BCL9 or BCL9L) binds to the TCF/LEF-binding site to up-regulate WNT/beta-catenin target genes, FGF16 gene was characterized as the evolutionarily conserved target of the WNT/beta-catenin signaling pathway, just like FGF18 and FGF20 genes.
