Rabbit anti Human Wnt2b antibody
detects an epitope within the internal region of human Wnt2b, also known as Wnt13. Wnt2b is a signalling factor which acts as a ligand for members of the frizzled family of seven transmembrane receptors. It is thought to play a key role during mammalian early embryogenesis, and may also function as a stem cell factor for neural and retinal progenitor cells.
The Wnt2b gene encodes two alternative transcript variants; Wnt2B splicing variant 1 encodes secreted-type glycoprotein (Wnt2B isoform 1), while Wnt2B splicing variant 2 encodes a transmembrane-type glycoprotein (Wnt2B isoform 2).
Wnt2b has been implicated in gastric cancer, esophageal cancer and skin basal cell carcinoma (Katoh 2005
