Wingless-type MMTV integration site family, member 2B

This gene encodes a member of the wingless-type MMTV integration site (WNT) family of highly conserved, secreted signaling factors. WNT family members function in a variety of developmental processes including regulation of cell growth and differentiation and are characterized by a WNT-core domain. This gene may play a role in human development as well as human carcinogenesis. This gene produces two alternatively spliced transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2008] (from NCBI)
