Gene Information

human ... WNT2(7472)

General description

The gene WNT2 (wingless-type MMTV integration site family member 2) is mapped to human chromosome 7q31-33. It is a secreted glycoprotein.


Protein Wnt-2 Precursor recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)

Biochem/physiol Actions

WNT2 (wingless-type MMTV integration site family member 2) is important for cellular proliferation, invasion and angiogenesis, leading to tumor growth. In mouse model, it is needed for vascularization of the mouse placenta. WNT2 is up-regulated in esophageal, gastric, colorectal, breast, lung, cervical and malignant glioma. It is down-regulated in preeclampsia (PE). Mutations in WNT2 are linked with increased risk to autism. It is suggested to be involved in language development in humans suffering from autism.

Features and Benefits

Prestige Antibodies® are highly characterized and extensively validated antibodies with the added benefit of all available characterization data for each target being accessible via the Human Protein Atlas portal linked just below the product name at the top of this page. The uniqueness and low cross-reactivity of the Prestige Antibodies® to other proteins are due to a thorough selection of antigen regions, affinity purification, and stringent selection. Prestige antigen controls are available for every corresponding Prestige Antibody and can be found in the linkage section.

Every Prestige Antibody is tested in the following ways:
  • IHC tissue array of 44 normal human tissues and 20 of the most common cancer type tissues.
  • Protein array of 364 human recombinant protein fragments.


Corresponding Antigen APREST74901.

Physical form

Solution in phosphate-buffered saline, pH 7.2, containing 40% glycerol and 0.02% sodium azide

The Wnt signaling pathway is a conserved pathway and plays a crucial role in regulating trophoblast functions. Abnormal expression of the Wnt pathway may result in the dysfunction of the trophoblast that can contribute to the pathogenesis of preeclampsia (PE)....

Previous evidence suggests that language function is modulated by genetic variants on chromosome 7q31-36. However, it is unclear whether this region harbors loci that contribute to speech delay in autism. We previously reported that the WNT2 gene located on 7q31...
