Gene Information

human ... WNT7A(7476)

General description

Wnt-7a is expressed in placenta, kidney, testis, uterus, fetal lung and fetal and adult brain. Most Wnt proteins can signal though a mechanism called the canonical Wnt pathway, in which Wnt proteins bind to and activate seven-pass transmembrane receptors of the Frizzled family ultimately leading to the disruption of β-Catenein degradation. Intracellular accumulation of β-Catenin increases translocation of the protein into the nucleus where it binds to TCF/LEF transcription factors and induces the expression of numerous genes. Increased Wnt/β-Catenein signaling is associated with tumorigenesis in a diverse set of human cancers. However, Wnt-7a/Frizzled-9 signaling has been shown to act as a tumor suppressor in non-small cell lung cancers.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Wnt-7a belongs to the Wnt family of signaling proteins that play a key role in maintaining the integrity of embryonic and adult tissues. Recombinant human Wnt-7a is a 35.5 kDa glycoprotein containing 318 amino acids. Due to glycosylation, Wnt-7a migrates between 40-55 kDa by SDS-PAGE gel under unreduced conditions

Physical form

Lyophilized with no additives.


Centrifuge the vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in water to a concentration of ≤0.2 mg/mL. Do not vortex. This solution can be stored at 2-8°C for up to 1 week. For extended storage, it is recommended to further dilute in a buffer containing a carrier protein (example 0.1% BSA) and store in working aliquots at -20°C to -80°C.

The mouse Wnt family includes at least 10 genes that encode structurally related secreted glycoproteins. Wnt-1 and Wnt-3 were originally identified as oncogenes activated by the insertion of mouse mammary tumor virus in virus-induced mammary adenocarcinomas, although they are not...
