R-Spondine: Einblicke in die Potenzierung der Wnt-Signaltransduktion
- 56 Downloads
Intercellular signalling by Wnt morphogenetic proteins is subject to a multi-layered system of regulation. The four secreted R-spondin proteins potentiate Wnt signalling in vertebrates. They are involved in embryogenesis, adult stem cell biology and cancer progression and have been proven essential for ex vivo culturing of organoids. Recent research has generated profound new insights into how R-spondins function to stabilize Wnt receptors of the Frizzled family at the cell surface.
