Secreted frizzled-related protein 2

SFRP2, secreted frizzled-related protein 2
This gene encodes a member of the SFRP family that contains a cysteine-rich domain homologous to the putative Wnt-binding site of Frizzled proteins. SFRPs act as soluble modulators of Wnt signaling. Methylation of this gene is a potential marker for the presence of colorectal cancer. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)
Top mentioned proteins: Frizzled, SFRP1, SFRP5, DKK1, WIF1

Salehi et al., Eşfahān, Iran. In J Cancer Res Clin Oncol, Feb 2016
In particular, DNA methylation markers (e.g., SEPT9, SFRP2, and ALX4), circulating microRNAs (e.g., microRNA21), SNPs in microRNAs binding site (e.g., rs4596 located within a target region of the predicted miR-518a-5p and miR-527), protein markers (e.g., carcinoembryonic antigen, N-methyltransferase), or microsatellites instability in tumors with deficient mismatch repair of some genes are among the most interesting and promising biomarkers.
