Wnt gene family members, including Wnt-1 thro µgh Wnt-10, play a key role in regulating cellular growth and differentiation. Wnt-1 is a cysteine-rich, secreted glycoprotein that associates with cell membranes and likely functions as a key regulator of cellular adhesion. Wnt-1, which is essential for normal development of the embryonic nervous system, contributes to hyperplasia and tumorigenic progression when improperly expressed in mammary tissue. Wnt-3 is involved in tumorigenesis and Wnt-2 and Wnt-4 may be associated with abnormal proliferation in human breast tissue. Wnt-6 is involved in oncogenesis and is co-expressed with Wnt10 in colorectal cancer cell lines. The presence of cervical and breast cell carcinomas may indicate an over expression of Wnt-6.
